Loni Kalbhor, 19th August 2022: A 17-year-old boy who was driving the two-wheeler has been seriously injured in an accident where a two-wheeler collided with an Indica car at MIT corner in Loni Kalbhor area on the Pune-Solapur highway.

Atharva Tushar Salunkhe (17), a resident of Kadamwakwasti (Patharewasti), taluka Haveli was seriously injured in an accident at MIT corner in the Loni Kalbhor area. Currently, he is undergoing treatment at Vishwaraj Hospital, Kadamwakwasti. Due to this accident, the issue of allowing minors to drive has come to the fore once again.


According to the information given by the police, Atharva was speeding from Loni station to Malimala side on a two-wheeler. As Atharva came to MIT corner, at the same time an Indica was coming on the Pune-Solapur route. On the other hand, a red-coloured four-wheeler was going towards Uruli Kanchan.


Atharva saw Indica coming up but at the same time, a red-coloured vehicle overtakes Atharva which results in Atharva hitting the Indica. Due to this, Atharva collided with the Indica and hit the intersection of the road. Reportedly, his condition is very critical and he is currently undergoing treatment in the Intensive Care Unit of Vishwaraj Hospital.

Meanwhile, the proportion of school and college students who violate traffic rules on the Pune-Solapur highway is high. In many places, students are seen driving vehicles at high speed and due to this, the number of accidents has also increased. The traffic department of the city police needs to keep a special watch on such minor drivers.


But as the police focus is more on recovery, in all the three villages of Loni Kalbhor, Uruli Kanchan and Kadamwakwasti, minors are running vehicles in violation of traffic rules. The amusing thing is that the parents are also seen giving vehicles to the minor children with great enthusiasm.


It is requested that transport police should conduct a special campaign to take action against vehicle owners or parents who allow children to drive if children violate traffic rules.
