Balasore: At least 12 pilgrims sustained injuries after the bus in which they were travelling rammed into a truck on NH-16 near Doisada under Soro police limits in Odisha’s Balasore district today.
The ill-fated bus ‘Pradhan & Pradhan’ was carrying around 60 pilgrims of Sundar Nagar in Gujarat to Kolkata from Puri. The vehicle dashed against a stationary LPG cylinder-laden truck from rear as the driver of the bus lost control over the wheels.
