Sealdah, 21st November: A horrendous bus accident took place in the early hours of 20th November, when a car and a public bus ran into each other in a head-on collision near Sealdah.

It appears like a major brake failure of the bus led to this massive bump. The dense foggy atmosphere of the morning added to the problem of rendering the signal lights almost obscure. The engine of the bus is totally damaged.

Fortunately, the car was saved and the driver was not much wounded due to the timely opening of safety pillows. The bus first hit the car and then a big tree nearby. The rescue team approached within an hour and took all the injured people to a nearby hospital for an immediate check-up.

Unconfirmed report says at least 15 people lost their lives and 7 were severely injured. A roadside tea shop has also been affected by this accident and the owner has suffered from a minor injury. The rescue work had been undertaken by the Kolkata fire brigade and the local people as well. The local police station is investigating to prepare a proper report.
