Defence and accidents.
With the increasing traffic load , rash drivers and less then adequate roads accidents are on the rise since quiet sometime and defence I can personally vouch has been very susceptible to them specially the road leading from ghazi chowk to beacon house and the main defence road ( the adil hospital one)
I was witness to one such tragedy where a young 24 yea old guy a worker in defence hospital was run over by a car.The guy suffered heavy injuries , was operated upon thrice due to internal haemorrahge and slipped into a come and passed away within a period of less then 14 hours.What senseless waste of a life snuffed out in such a short time because of someone who was in too much of a hurry to drive carefully.
The deceased was the only son of a widowed mother , the sole supporter of his family and was scheduled to be married on the 4th right before ramazan.Suffice to say it was tragic ….Such frustratingly empty words when you think of the tragedy which has destroyed two families.
They are trying to broaden the road but I really wish someone could come up with better rules to avoid this.
