The locals have alleged that the recent incident occurred because the MCD has been creating caves in the roads and does not repair them well.
A local resident, Mahalakshmi, said: “The truck driver was innocent, it is the MCD and PWD to be blamed. They create caves and avoid filling them up properly to avert the accident.”
Meanwhile, one of the relatives of the lady, Maya (60) injured in the accident alleged that the MCD caved in the road years ago and had not filled up properly to date.
“The truck driver ran after the accident, whom should we hold accountable for the accident? She is my mother-in-law and her both legs have been fractured besides other injuries. She went on the road to bid adieu to a relative and met with this accident,” he said.
In the accident that took place on Sunday, a sixty-year-old man was killed and two others were injured after a brick-laden truck overturned on them due to a road cave-in in Delhi’s Mangolpuri area.
