Hyderabad: A bus belonging to Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) fell off a bridge on Tuesday morning, killing one and injuring fifteen people. The accident happened in Telangana's Adilabad district.
The driver of the bus apparently lost control of th e vehicle. Due to this, the bus fell off the bridge across a dried-up stream in Kagaznagar mandal of Adilabad district, about 300 km from here.
The bus was on its way from Kagaznagar to Bejjur in the same district.
The casualties were immediately attended to and were rushed to the hospital.
A similar incident had also taken place in Telangana’s Nalgonda district last year when a bus had collided with a truck killing 10 people and injuring 15.
That bus too belonged to state-owned Telangana Road Transport Corporation. It was on its way from Bhongir to Nalgonda when it overturned after a head-on collision with a speeding truck coming from opposite direction.
