Road accidents take place in big cities almost every day. Sometimes, these accidents prove to be fatal. Two main factors responsible for road accidents are heavy traffic on roads and rash driving. Normally, it is cyclists and motor cyclists who are the victims of such accidents. Sometimes, pedestrians are also killed in these accidents. The traffic on roads has increased so much that it often becomes very difficult to cross a road.Last Sunday, I saw a very tragic accident. I was with my father on the way for school. it was 7:30 AM There was a heavy rush of buses, trucks, cars, taxis, scooters, etc. On the road everyone seemed to be in a hurry to reach his place of work in time. Horns were being blown by one and all. There was a lot of noise. It was a maddening scene. Suddenly, I heard the sound of a big crash. A heavily-loaded truck had tried to overtake a fast running bike and collided with it.All this happened so suddenly that my father and I could not understand what had happened. A number of people gathered at the site of the accident. The driver of the truck Died instantly.The bike man received head injuries , some fractures and was lying unconscious on the road. So my father phoned rescue service and dispatch both of them to the hospital afterwhich the bike man was declared to be in a better state and had fractures in both of the legs. It was quite good to hear that.

Thus one person lost his life and the other sustained serious injuries due to the fault of a reckless truck driver. It was a tragic accident
