Two people are dead and two are injured following an untimely brake failure that took place last week in India.
The accident occurred when a construction truck experienced total brake failure and ultimately struck a nearby electric pole which then systematically hit a bypassing car that contained a family of four. A man, his wife and their two children were in the car. Among them, the mother was instantly killed while the rest sustained life threatening injuries.
Reports state that one of the daughters succumbed to her wounds in the hospital while the remaining father and daughter made full recoveries.
A large crowd of people gathered to help in transporting the injured to the hospital. Traffic was said to have been delayed for an extended period of time. So far, the police have not identified responsibility for this tragedy or issued any statements.
