Lately ST bus accidents are happening frequently due to laziness of ST bus drivers. Both the buses were heavily damaged in the accident that took place on Monday morning. As it is a long distance bus, there are more passengers in the bus. Two of the injured passengers are in critical condition and have been admitted to Jawhar Upazila Hospital. The remaining 22 passengers have sustained minor injuries and have been treated and released.
Most of the passengers in the bus are from Nashik and Jalgaon. The Public Works Department has not put up any notice board at the turn where the accident took place at Dabakpada. Therefore, it is being demanded that a board should be put up as a dangerous turn at this place.
