Lorry turns turtle injuring driver, assistant

A lorry driver and his assistant were critically injured when their vehicle carrying a load of timber toppled while taking a bend at Moralandakanda in Meegahakivula.

"The road from Kalugakadura to Pitamaruwa too was completely blocked due to the accident and motorists had to find alternative routes until the road was cleared," police said.

Police said the accident may have been the result of the heavy load of timber the lorry was carrying.

The two injured men have been transferred to the main provincial hospital from the Meegahakivula Hospital due to the seriousness of their injuries.
