Tragic - Tree falls on a running truck near Melli Checkpost in Sikkim killing driver on the spot

Today morning rains have taken the life of a driver after a tree fell on him while he was in his way to Sikkim from Siliguri.

The accident took place near Melli Check Post between Bengal and Sikkim.

A huge portion of a tree's trunk fell exactly above the drivers cabin crushing him to death on the spot.

The body has been rescued now and been sent for post mortem.

People driving towards hills are requested to watch out for trees and branches which are dangling due to the erosion of soil underneath it.
