U4UVoice confirmed the details from SHO Narwal, Mahmood Khan, who was present at the site and he said,
“The truck driver was coming down the road and the brakes on his truck had supposedly failed. He had lost control and on his way down smashed into two vehicles. People noticed that the truck was out of control and raised alarm and so the damage was minimised.”
“However, on the turn, the truck driver could not control the now speeding truck and turned left falling sideways on a Maruti Gypsy car and a fruit rehri. There was a person buying fruit and on the other side of the rehri the vendor and another person were crused under the truck,” Khan added.
“The locals sprang to help the three crushed people and we reached the spot. With the help of the locals and a crane, the three people were removed from below the truck. While one person was not injured, the other two were injured critically,” said Mahmood Khan.
At the time of reporting, the injured persons had been shifted to GMC Jammu for treatment and their latest stats are unknown. Bystanders were of the opinion that two of the three may not survive. The Driver of the truck had been detained and was taken to Narwal Police Station.
