Solan, Himachal Pradesh: A truck driver died after his vehicle fell into the River on Saturday. The accident occurred at around 11:00 am when the truck was crossing a bridge on the Solan-Nahan highway.
The driver, Suresh Kumar, was a resident of Solan. He was carrying a load of cement when the truck lost control and fell into the river. Kumar was trapped in the cab and drowned. His body was recovered by divers from the State Disaster Response Force (SDRF).
The cause of the accident is not yet known. However, it is suspected that the driver may have lost control of the truck due to the slippery road conditions. The road was wet due to recent rains.
The accident has caused a traffic jam on the highway. The police have diverted traffic to a different route.
Kumar was a married man with two children. He was the sole breadwinner of his family. His death has caused a great deal of grief to his family and friends.
