An Accident

Life is a vale of tears. It is a drama of pain. In this age of high speed vehicles, accidents are very common. It is the mad craze for speed which is generally responsible for all the accidents. Only last week, I saw a very serious accident on the Ludhiana-Chandigarh road. I was scootering down from Chandigarh.  As I was nearing Mohali. I saw bus going at a high speed. A car was following it. The car driver wanted to overtake the bus as he tried to do so, the vehicle collided against another car coming from the opposite direction. Both the cars turned turtle. Four of the occupants of the car were killed on the spot while another three were badly injured. People working in the nearby fields rushed to the scene of the crash. A few passengers of the bus were also seriously injured as it had struck against a tree. I could not see the mutilated and blood-stained bodies. I rushed to a telephone booth and rang up the police and the hospital authorities. Medical rescue party and the police reached the spot in a short time. Some of the injured were provided first aid on the spot while others were sent to the PGI at Chandigarh. The relatives of the dead were informed. It was a heart-rending spectacle. There were tears in every eye. Such accidents can certainly be avoided if the drivers observe the rules of the road. Speed, no doubt thrills, but it also kills. The golden rule to avoid accident is: ‘Safety first, speed afterwards.’
