A dreadful accident unfolded on Monday at Samaguri town centre in Assam's Nagaon as a privately owned vehicle erupted into flames following a head-on collision with a container truck. The incident occurred amidst the busy traffic on the thoroughfare, intensifying concerns over road safety in the region.

Eyewitnesses reported that the collision occurred when the container truck veered off course, leading to a direct collision with the oncoming personal vehicle.

As a result of the accident, two occupants of the private vehicle, a Hyundai Verna, sustained injuries and were promptly transported to nearby medical facilities for treatment. The severity of their injuries remains undisclosed at this time.
