Two killed in road mishaps

Ludhiana, July 19

Reckless driving and poor road sense snuffed out two lives on the city roads during the past 48 hours.

Swarnjit Singh (38) was grievously injured when his motorcycle rammed into a stationary truck outside a dhaba near Hardy’s World on the Main GT Road on Sunday afternoon. Dhaba owner Binder Singh told the police that the truck was parked in front of his dhaba and the victim, riding a motorcycle (PB-09H-6455), rammed into the truck apparently while trying to avert an oncoming vehicle.

A critically injured Swarnjit Singh was rushed to a private hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

In another hit-and-run accident, Sandeep Kumar (33) was hit by a speeding vehicle on Dhandari Pul while driving his motorcycle (PB-10BU-8751) late on Saturday night, killing him on the spot.

The police have registered two cases under Sections 304-A/279 of the IPC and investigation was in progress. —OC
