Rayagada: A trailer truck had a brake failure and crashed into Muniguda main railway crossing on Friday. Because of the crash, the Rayagada-Munigada rail connectivity has been cut-off.
The trailer truck was carrying Aluminum powder and was on its way to Jharsuguda from Vishakhapatnam.
On Friday morning, as the truck neared Muniguda's main railway crossing, the brakes failed. What could have been a major accident was prevented due to timely thinking of the driver. He crashed the truck into the rail line and instead saved the lives of many present nearby.
The officials of Muniguda’s Railway Protection Force and Railway officials arrived at the crash site and are in an attempt to clear the tracks. A probe also has been initiated.
