2 cars, bus damaged in freak accident in city


Panaji: In a strange accident, a private passenger bus damaged two cars after it was hit by another private bus from behind near the market in the city on Friday evening. One of the buses also suffered damage, but luckily no passengers were hurt in the accident.

As per the available information, passengers were boarding a private bus while the driver was outside and there was another private bus behind. Suddenly, the driver of the bus which was behind, lost control over the vehicle and it collided against the bus which was in the front. As a result the idle bus (in gears) due to the impact started, moved forward and damaged two cars before coming to a halt.  A bus conductor also ran towards it and tried to stop it by reaching out to the brakes after opening the driver’s cabin. The windshield of the bus which collided from behind was broken.
