Double-Decker Bus Collision in Etawah: 14 Injured, Driver Dozed Off

In a recent unfortunate incident, a privately operated double-decker bus traveling from Delhi to Lucknow was involved in a collision on the Agra-Lucknow Expressway, specifically in Kurkha village within the jurisdiction of the Usrahar police station area. This incident occurred near Milestone 124 on the expressway and resulted in injuries to 14 passengers who were aboard the bus at the time.

The injured passengers were promptly provided with medical attention and have been transported to Saifai Medical College for treatment. It is reported that approximately 50 passengers were on board the bus when the accident transpired.

In a distressing turn of events, a double-decker bus traveling on the Agra-Lucknow Expressway overturned after colliding with a divider. Preliminary investigations suggest that driver fatigue may have played a significant role in this unfortunate accident.

It is suspected that the bus driver, possibly experiencing fatigue, may have lost control of the vehicle, leading to the collision and subsequent overturning of the bus. Driver fatigue is a known risk factor for accidents on long journeys, emphasizing the importance of well-rested and alert drivers.

Upon receiving information about the bus accident, Usrahar Station Officer (SO) Vivek Kumar Singh, accompanied by other law enforcement personnel, promptly reached the accident scene. Their swift response ensured that the injured passengers received timely medical attention and were subsequently transported to a hospital for treatment.
