A long, winding and narrow road runs alongside the beautiful, emerald green Trisuli River with its many white sandy banks lies between Kathmandu and Pokhara. Many trucks, tourist buses and cars ply this road day and night. This scenic road looks pretty accident prone to me. Perhaps it’s safer to fly to Pokhara.
Five people were killed and one injured when a car skidded off the road and plunged into Trishuli river at Jogimara in Dhading Wednesday night.
The car lost balance and skidded off the highway, plunging into the river some 150 meters down. Those killed in the accident have been identified as Krishna Dawadi, Sanjeev Dawadi, Rabindra Dawadi, Ramesh Dhungana and Ram Kumar Shrestha. The sixth passenger, Deepak Gurung, was injured in the accident.
The car was en route to Kathmandu from Pokhara. nepalnews.com
