He is lucky to survive the severe accident – Swapn Kishor Singh on Rishabh Pant
Swapn Kishor Singh, superintendent of police, Haridwar, who was one of the cops who rushed to the accident site, said that the Indian wicketkeeper-batter is lucky to survive the accident.
“Hearing a loud sound of the accident, nearby villagers along with the local cops, rushed to the spot and pulled him out of the car. He was then rushed to a nearby hospital from where he was referred to a major hospital in Dehradun,” said Swapn Kishor Singh, as quoted by TOI.
“Pant sustained injuries on his forehead, a hand and right knee. However, he is conscious and able to talk. The car he was driving was completely burnt. He is lucky to survive the severe accident.”
Also, a police officer told TOI the possible reason behind the major car accident of Rishabh Pant.
“It is likely that Pant fell asleep while driving because there was no fog on the road which could have affected the visibility. He has a cut on his left eyebrow and a ligament injury on his right knee apart from having bruises on his back,” said the officer.
