Truck turns turtle as driver tries to save a recklessly driven auto near Cinemax

The terror and chaos unleashed by the Auto-rickshaw drivers is on the rise every day. In a similar incident that occurred on October 28, 2014 at 1:30 am at Variety Square, a truck was carrying saw-dust from the city to an unknown destination. When the truck was turning from near Moonlight Studio to the Amravati Road, suddenly an Auto-Rickshaw came in front. The driver of the truck, in a desperate move to save the Auto-rickshaw, applied brakes suddenly causing the truck to topple over. The saw dust too got dumped on the road.

However, the auto-rickshaw escaped from the spot and the driver somehow managed to straighten the truck and remove the vehicle. Fortunately there were neither casualties nor damage to any property or vehicle.

The accident which occurred on October 28, 2014, at 1:30 am, Rahul Anandrao Dhore aged 23 years and a resident of Nerla Ward No 3 in Pavni who was the driver of Swaraj Mazda 407 truck was carrying saw-dust to some unknown destination. When he reached exactly in front of Cinemax at Variety Square, an auto appeared from somewhere. However, in order to save the auto, Rahul applied brakes hard and as a result, the 407 truck got toppled over. The auto-rickshaw driver did not even have the courtesy to see if the driver was injured or not and just sped away.

Since there was no casualty and since the auto-driver escaped, the truck driver Rahul did not lodge any complaint. He called the owner of the vehicle who with the help of another vehicle straightened the vehicle and removed the vehicle. Another vehicle was brought to remove the saw dust spread on the road.
