The name of the driver was Nutun Shaw(45). According to the eyewitnesses, the accident took place at around 11:30 pm.
Buses and Trucks often run quite recklessly on the highway and no police patrol comes forward to regulate rash driving, said a local street vendor. Moreover, the locals have also accused the municipality of not installing sufficient light sources around the area which causes very low visibility on the streets. Due to all these reasons, that particular area of Nonapukur has become an accident-prone zone.
According to several estimates, it is the 13th accident of the year, and in almost every accident, Nonapukur witnesses deaths. Fortunately, there were no passengers on the bus as well as no conductor as the bus was returning to the depot. Though the bus driver was killed, the truck driver got severely injured and was admitted to the district hospital. According to reports, the driver was intoxicated and alcohol has been rescued from his truck. The government has ordered a high-level enquiry to find a resolution for this area.
