3 killed and 4 seriously injured as truck overturns in Devas – Jhadol

Devas, a small hamlet in Jhadol tehsil that comes under the tribal belt, witnessed an accident today morning, when a truck loaded with cement bricks turned over and crushed three people to death.  4 people are also injured in the freak accident.

On its way from Gujarat, the cement in this truck was meant to be delivered to a government school at Devas.  The truck driver, while taking a quick reverse, lost control and the vehicle overturned, with all 7 laborers sitting on top of the bricks, getting crushed under the tumbling bricks.  Three of them died on the spot while the other 4 were injured seriously.  The condition of those injured is said to be critical.

As soon as the truck overturned, onlookers and people from nearby areas quickly joined in extracting the laborers from underneath the bricks.  It was too late for the three unfortunate laborers.  The villagers, with the help of the police, shifted the injured laborers to the nearby community health center, where their primary treatment is going on.  It is possible that after administering primary treatment, the injured be shifted to a bigger hospital.
