Nine persons miraculously survived on Monday even after their speeding car plunged into a 50-feet deep gorge.
The incident happened when they were crossing a bridge, few metres ahead of Gadi Cantt. The person on the wheels lost control and the speeding car fell into the gorge.
The students, all studying B.Tech in Dehradun’s Petroleum University, had decided to go for a picnic to Mussoorie on one of their friend’s birthday. They started their road journey at 1:00 am on Monday.
On their way, the driver lost control on the car after which it plunged into a deep gorge. Their screams for help woke up the residents of the area. They called for an ambulance that took all of them to nearby Synergy hospital.
While six of them suffered minor injuries and have been discharged from the hospital, the condition of three of the students is said to be critical and are currently in the ICU.
Meanwhile, police who suspect it was a case of drunken driving, has not shown a keen interest in investigating the case. They have still not tried to know the students’ background.
Also, the hospital authorities didn’t let anybody meet the students and also refused to divulge any details about them.
