It has been gathered that the driver applied brakes suddenly in a bid to avoid a pothole. Simultaneously, even the driver of the van carrying the rods had applied brakes. Luckily,  the couple and the child escaped by a  hair’s breadth as the rods just passed a few cms above the heads of the woman and her child. The child was sitting on the back seat.

The accident disrupted traffic on the route for some time.

The transportation of such rods in private vehicles is usually risky. These are simple examples of violating traffic rule which becomes cause for accidents .
