NH 66 road is so risky to travel as work is under progress in some places the motorist drive rashly and prone to accidents,cause harm to others. Knocking the cyclist was the first mistake and without stopping the vehicle and treating the inured is the second. Book two criminal case on the driver for this .

Accidents mainly happens due to speed and reckless driving. The licence o one commits this blunder must be cancelled only then they will realize or else they will never understand.
