Victims/deceased names: 1. Shambhu Mandal : “Three dead, two critically injured in bus-auto collision in Bihar’s Sitamarhi”

Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Three people were killed and two others were critically injured in a tragic road accident in Bihar’s Sitamarhi. The incident occurred around 8 am near Dhurv College on NH 22 on the Sitamarhi-Sonbarsa Road. The victim, identified as Shambhu Mandal, was the auto-rickshaw driver and a resident of Sonbarsa.

According to initial reports, the accident happened due to low visibility caused by dense fog. The auto-rickshaw was en route to Sitamarhi when the collision occurred. Sadly, three passengers lost their lives on the spot, while two others sustained critical injuries and are currently receiving medical treatment.

In another unfortunate incident, eight pilgrims, including a woman and a child, lost their lives, and twelve others were injured in Odisha’s Keonjhar. The victims, hailing from Pudamari in Ganjam district, were on their way to seek blessings at the revered Goddess Trarini temple when their vehicle collided with a stranded truck. The injured individuals were immediately rushed to the nearby Ghatagaon and later transferred to SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack for further treatment.

Preliminary investigations suggest that the driver of the vehicle may have fallen asleep at the wheel, leading to the tragic accident. Authorities are currently conducting a thorough inquiry to determine the exact cause of the mishap.

Efforts are underway to apprehend the absconding bus driver involved in the Sitamarhi accident. It is crucial to hold accountable those responsible for such accidents to ensure justice for the victims and their families.

As road accidents continue to claim innocent lives, it is imperative for authorities to implement stricter traffic regulations and increase awareness campaigns to promote safe driving practices. Additionally, enhancing road infrastructure and improving visibility measures during foggy conditions can play a significant role in reducing such accidents.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to the families and friends of the victims during this difficult time. May they find strength and support in dealing with their profound loss.
