When Warnings Are Ditched

Unable to see on time this hole on the capital's Mirpur Road leading to a sewer opening, the speeding truck carrying sponge iron weighing four times its capacity lost its two axles on impact, mounted the divider and ended up on its side around 2:30am yesterday. Luckily the three persons inside the cab escaped with bruises. On April 4 a bus driver lost control going over a poorly repaired trench at the Moghbazar intersection, running over three workers, leaving two dead. The photo was taken near the Dhanmondi 8 playground. Photo: Fahd Mannan
