5. MTC Bus Stuck for Over Four Hours in Ditch in Submerged Road

Causing almost a life threat to 30 commuters, an MTC bus in Ennore plunged into a ditch dug up on a road, which had submerged after heavy rains. ‘‘Since the road was submerged, I could not notice the ditch. The left tyre immediately went inside,’’ said the driver.

The front and back tyres of the bus were deeply locked in the ditch which gave a tough time for the officials to pull it out. ''The engine too had stopped working,'' added the driver. However, the driver said none of the passengers were hurt and they were sent in the next bus. It took four hours for the officials to pull the bus out.
