TANKER OVERTURNED: An oil tanker, carrying 15,000 litres of diesel, skidded off the road and struck a tree on Kamalia-Chichawatni Bypass as the driver snoozed while driving the vehicle here.

The tanker, luckily, did not catch fire but a large quantity of diesel spilt into a ditch along the road. On information, Kamalia Assistant Commissioner Hafiz Najeeb, along with Saddr police station house officer, arrived at the spot and oversaw the rescue operation. The road was closed for traffic and people were stopped from coming near the site of accident.

Driver Taj Muhammad and his colleague Waqas Ahmed sustained minor injuries and were taken to Toba District Headquarters (DHQ) Hospital for medical aid. The remainder of the diesel was decanted into another oil tanker and the road was later cleared for traffic.
