Second accident on consecutive day on NH 05
The NH 05 was the site of another horrific accident just a day back when a truck hit 14 vehicles from the rear.
This being a common occurrence, particularly during the apple season, the police have appealed to truck drivers entering Himachal from other states to be careful and alert while driving because most of them have little or no experience of driving on the hill roads.
