The dangers of monsoon begin, as the latest news from Pune is that of an accident that involved a bus and a Tempo. The accident killed nine and left 12 others injured.
The incident occurred about 77km from Pune, in the Narayangaon district. The accident took place around 1:45 a.m. amidst heavy rain on Monday. The bus was heading to Pune from Nashik.
The Tempo, carrying onions, was parked on the side of the road after the vehicle had a flat tyre. As per a police official, "It seems the bus driver could not see the tempo due to heavy rain."
The police officer said, "Identities of the deceased are yet to be ascertained" and the injured are being treated at a nearby hospital.
One of the major reasons for accidents during monsoon is visibility, especially in the dark. The light throw from the headlight is not efficient enough and misting on the inside of the windshield reduces visibility drastically. To help you drive safely in monsoon, do read our Monsoon Driving Tips.
