3 electricity department staffers died on spot at Borim junction

GOA: Three electricity department staffers died on the spot at Borim junction around 1.30pm on Thursday after the department’s truck in which they were travelling in turned turtle. The three were crushed to death under the power poles that they were transporting from Margao to Marcel.

Three of the staffers, including the driver, were sitting inside the cabin.
While six were sitting on the open carrier section of the truck with the poles when the driver lost control of the vehicle on the slope after Borim bridge, at the Borim circle, executive engineer Ponda division Deepak Krishna Naik told.

The staff driver and another line helper, who were sitting in the truck’s cabin, suffered minor injuries and received treatment at a hospital in Ponda. One staffer escaped with no injuries. “The truck was carrying ten poles, each 7.5m long which were drawn from central stores in Margao and were being transported to Ponda,” Naik said.
