A moving truck caught fire late last night at Kherwara Toll Plaza. Sensing fire, the truck driver immediately jumped off the truck to save his life. A toll plaza employee however received burn injuries in the incident.

Incident happened last night when a truck was going on NH-8 and approaching Kherwara toll plaza. As soon as the truck reached the toll plaza, fire started erupting from it.

Sensing danger, the truck driver jumped off the truck to save his life. However, a man stationed at the toll plaza got caught in the fire and received burn injuries. Being night time, there was only limited staff at the toll plaza.

The staff present there immediately called up police and fire brigade. One fire brigade van each from Udaipur and Dungarpur reached the spot in a hour’s time and doused the fire after 2 hours of effort. The truck had completely been burnt by then.

Toll plaza employee burnt during the incident has been admitted to a hospital. It is suspected that the truck caught fire due to short-circuit.
