Every day, hundreds of road traffic accidents occur across the country. Road accidents occur for a variety of reasons. Often, drivers are distracted while behind the wheel, taking their focus away from the road. While the causes of accidents can vary, the consequences are often the same, resulting in everything from vehicular and property damage to serious injuries. In a recent case, A car carrying 16 people who were scheduled to attend a wedding, met with an accident in Vizianagaram on Monday.
“The car was carrying 16 people overturned at around 4 pm on Monday at Errannagudi junction in Garugubilli Mandal, in Vizianagaram.

They were discharged after receiving first aid.
Garugubilli ASI M Rambabu told a leading media daily that the accident took place at a turning, due to a sudden break. “The road was wet due to rain. The passengers were returning from Hindupuram village in Parvatipuram Mandal to Ravipalli village in Garugubilli Mandal. A case has been filed under section 337 of the Indian Penal Code,” he said.
