Hyderabad, March 29 (Maxim News): A 23-year-old student pilot, who works in Begumpet airport, was grievously injured in a non-fatal road crash occurred this morning near Chatanpalli Bridge under Shadnagar Police limits. He was admitted to a hospital.
The student pilot received multiple injuries on his body when his bike hit the divider at around 4.45 am. It is learnt that he was riding the bike all the way from Madanapalle in Chittoor District of Andhra Pradesh which is around 550 km overnight. An official of City Police said taking up such an adventurous journey on the highways with heavy vehicles is suicidal as the rider would become victim of crash due to sleeplessness and fatigue.
Stating that lack of driving skills among the two- wheeler riders make them vulnerable as they can’t manoeuvre between the heavy vehicles and steep curves, the CTP official said as the roads seem to be empty due to lockdown, the riders tend to over speed and lose control of the vehicle. The CTP advised public not to take up such long and dangerous rides anytime and more particularly during lockdown period. (Maxim News)
