24 year old dead in Balliwala flyover accident
A 24-year-old man died on Wednesday after the two-wheeler he was riding met with an accident on Balliwala flyover. The incident has left the local residents angry who said that this is the fourth life that the flyover has claimed in the past five months.
Mahesh Pandey, a resident of Turner Road, said, “I have a written a letter to the newly appointed CM Trivendra Singh Rawat, requesting him to look into the matter. The flyover was thrown open to traffic in July and since then several accidents have taken place here. The flyover was originally suppose to be four-lane but it is so narrow that it has turned into an accident-prone area.”
Residents said that the two-lane flyover was very narrow which was leading to frequent accidents and demanded that a divider be constructed along the 783m structure to improve traffic flow .
In the latest accident, Yuvraj Rai died on Wednesday after the two-wheeler he was riding skidded on the flyover on March 18. His 18-year- old cousin who was riding pillion is in a hospital in Delhi in a critical condition.
