Early on Monday, near Chebrolu of Ungutur Mandal in West Godavari district, on the national highway No 16, two people died in a road accident. A lorry on its way from Guntur to Vijayanagaram smacked a stationary lorry near Chebroulu. While two people died on the spot, three others sustained stern injuries. The victims have been rushed to government hospital of Tadepalli Gudem. The deceased have been identified as the native of Vijayawada. More details in the matter are awaited.


These days, mishaps have been on a rise. Let it be a mishap on the road or fire or otherwise, the main reason turns to be the reckless attitude of the people. There is a need to exact the situation so as to prevent the accidents. Surely, if timely preventive measures would have been adopted, most of the accidents could have been avoided. The people need to be educated. Better and wide publicity through the mass media channels may be opted for the same. Entertainment-Education concepts are most befitting in this case and will surely prove effective.
