Uppinangady/Puttur, June 16, 2019: Traffic on NH 75 was disrupted for near 5 hours after a lorry overturned at Neerakatte in Bajathooru on June 15, Saturday.
The lorry, which was laden with poultry manure, was plying to Chennai from Baikampady in Mangaluru.
The accident took place when the driver attempted to avoid ramming into a compound wall while allowing another vehicle to overtake his vehicle.
Lorry driver Rajkamal and cleaner Gajendra suffered bruises. Later the poultry manure from the lorry was shifted to another vehicle and the lorry was shifted to one side of the road in order to facilitate the smooth flow of vehicles.
Following traffic congestion, all the vehicles including cars and buses were diverted via Kadaba and asked to pass through Periyadka-Ramakunja-Golithottu. The heavy vehicles were asked to park beside the road from Neerakatte to Uppinangady.
