5 die on roads, tracks

Four persons have been killed and three others injured in separate road mishaps in and around the steel city since Thursday morning. Also, a middle-aged woman came under a train in Ghatshila on Friday.

A car rammed into a stationary dumper in front of Indo-Danish Tool Room on Tata-Kandra Road in the small hours of Friday, leaving one dead and three injured.

Police said Balram Sahu (40), a resident of Sopudera, Parsudih, died on the spot, and the three injured were taken to MGM Medical College and Hospital.

Shyam Roshan Kadurbar (35), also from Supudera, was critical and shifted to Tata Main Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries in the afternoon. The car carrying the four persons was coming from the Kandra end and heading towards Jamshedpur.

In another mishap, a 23-year-old youth was seriously hurt when his bike was hit by an autorickshaw near Adityapur Toll Bridge on Tata-Kandra Road on Friday afternoon. The biker, whose identity is yet to be ascertained, has been admitted to MGM Medical College and Hospital.

In a late Thursday night accident, a 35-year-old biker rammed into a stationary truck near Sudha Dairy on the Tata-Kandra Road. The man was rushed to Tata Main Hospital where he succumbed to his head injuries in an hour.

Adityapur OC Ajay Kumar said the mishaps apparently took place owing to reckless driving. “We are probing the circumstances that led to the accidents,” said Kumar.

On the outskirts of Jamshedpur, a 21-year-old youth was injured when his bike was hit by an unknown vehicle on Hata-Potka Road on Thursday morning. Soren Patro, a resident of Potka, died at Tata Main Hospital this morning.

A middle-aged woman was hit by a passenger train when she was trying to cross the tracks at Ghatshila station. The railway police recovered the mutilated body and sent it for post-mortem.
