A road in the Capital received a different kind of high on Sunday afternoon, after a truck carrying whisky bottles overturned at the Delhi Noida Direct flyover.

The mishap caused a massive traffic at the usually traffic-free DND. Police said the incident took place around 2pm, when the rear tyre of a truck carrying whisky bottles burst, causing it to overturn. At the time of the incident, the driver was transporting the consignment towards a liquor shop owner’s warehouse in New Ashok Nagar. Police said two cranes were used to remove the truck and clear the broken whisky bottles from the road. It took the police around 3 hours to clear the mess from the road.

Meanwhile,, six people were reportedly injured in three separate accidents across the city. The first incident was reported from Madhuban Chowk in Rohini, when a truck hit a Santro car, causing it to hit another truck in front of it. A woman trapped in the Santro car had to be rescued by firefighters, who used gas cutters to remove her from the vehicle. In the second accident, reported from Mangolpuri, a speeding Honda City car rammed into a Maruti Eeco at the West Enclave crossing. Police said the Eeco car had jumped a traffic signal and the Honda City coming from Peeragarhi rammed into a side of the vehicle. Police say that the impact was such that the Eeco rolled over to its side. The Eeco car driver and his passenger were injured in the incident.

In the third accident, two trucks carrying sand from Peeragarhi rammed into a third stationary truck near the Madhuban Chowk underpass. Both truck drivers were injured in the accident.
