Today at 2.05pm two motorcycles collided with each other injuring one seriously and two others.
The accident occurred near Arun Theatre on Congress Road (the cross road towards hotel Panchamrut). A motorcyclist coming in full speed from First gate towards military Mahadev collided with another motorcyclist who was coming wrong side on the same road trying to go towards first gate.
The police immediately came in and fortunately a Police jeep was passing by which took the injured to hospital. The 108 ambulance which was called in by on lookers came later.
Residents of the area demanded that speed breakers be put up near the side roads approaching the Congress road so that such accidents done take place. Similar accidents have take place many a times on the same road and most of the time they go unreported and hence nothing is done by the authorities, Santosh Purohit a local resident told this blog. There are as many as 8 cross roads on Congress road from Military Mahadev to first railway gate.
Commuters on Congress road normally are in full speed and suddenly when some vehicle comes in cross the road either they collide or skid after applying brakes urgently.
