Pothole claims another life in Kerala, motorist who fell run over by truck from behind

KOCHI: A two-wheeler rider met with a tragic finish after he was thrown off the scooter because it ran right into a pothole in entrance of Mar Athanasius School at Nedumbassery on the nationwide freeway.

Hashim, 52, a resident of Manakkapady in Paravur, was returning after work when his scooter hit the pothole.

An unidentified truck that got here from  behind ran over Hashim as he fell on the street. The incident occurred at 10.30 pm on Friday.

Hashim was working at a resort in Angamaly.

The police mentioned they’re inspecting the CCTV footage from the realm to establish the automobile which sped away after the incident. An investigation is underway.

The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) officers stuffed the pothole on the street instantly after the incident.

Meanwhile, Kerala Public Works Minister PA Muhammad Riyas accused the Union Government of apathy in repairing the nationwide highways even after repeated requests despatched by him.

“Several letters have been sent to the Union Government pointing out the issues on the Thrissur-Angamaly stretch on the NH, including the place where the accident took place. However, they have not paid adequate attention to it. The issue was brought to the attention of the Legislative Assembly also,” Riyas mentioned.

The risks that potholes in Kerala pose was raised by improvement economist Professor KP Kannan in a latest column on newindianexpress.com. He had written that “although there are good roads in some stretches in the state, many of the narrower roads — other than highways and major roads — are replete with potholes that have turned dangerous for motorists.  Often the borders of roads have no protective build and there is always the risk of this leading to dangerous falls.”
