Wretched condition of many portions of the national highway 37 has been the cause of many road accidents in Assam. In another accident on NH 37, a Jorhat-bound bus (AS 01 HC 9246) from Guwahati overturned on the road at Numaligarh in the wee hours Tuesday.
The accident took place around 4 pm Tuesday.
Several passangers suffered injuries following the mishap with local people blaming slow pace of four-laning work for increasing accidents. There were, however, no fatalities as a result of the accident.
The injured passengers were rushed to Bokakhat Civil Hospital where they were attended to by doctors while those with minor injuries were discharged after being administered first-aid treatment.
