SunstarTV Bureau: A gas tanker carrying LPG overturned on NH-16 near Tampara in Chhatrapur area of Ganjam district, today.
The major cause of this accident is the dense fog in the region, due to which the driver of the vehicle has lost its control.
An official mentioned, “As a precautionary measure, vehicular movement from both the ends has been stopped for the time being.”
“An emergency response team from Visakhapatnam is on the way and it will reach within two hours. Besides, a safety maintenance team from Khordha will also reach here within 30 minutes. There’s a leakage in the tanker, hence, another tanker is also on the way to empty the tanker,” informed another official.
Meanwhile, police and fire services personnel were on the spot and efforts were on to avoid any untoward incident.
