Maha: State transport bus falls in ditch; 23 passengers rescued
Some of the passengers suffered minor injuries in the accident which took place at Shrishti village under Partur tehsil at around 8 pm, they said.
The driver of the bus, going from Partur to Ashti, lost control while trying to cross a river bridge submerged under rainwater, resulting in the vehicle falling into the four feet deep ditch, the police said.
Villagers rushed to the spot and rescued all the passengers. Police inspector Shyamsunder Kauthale said 23 passengers, including two children, and the driver were rescued.
The district has been witnessing heavy rainfall for the last three days and this has led to an increase in water level in rivulets and other water bodies. PTI COR RSY RSY
