Rishabh Pant reveals real reason behind his accident to Uttarakhand CM, locals back cricketer's claim


India wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant on Sunday made a big revelation to Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhabi, who visited him at the Max Hospital in Dehradun.

Pant told Dhami that his accident happened due to a pothole on the road, a claim which was also backed up by the locals in the area where his Mercedes crashed early Friday morning.

Till now it was being reported that Pant fell asleep at the wheel which caused the accident but the CM's statement has changed things.

Dhami also updated everybody on Pant's current condition.

"Rishabh Pant is experiencing pain in the body due to injuries suffered in the accident. As per doctors, pain should reduce in the next 24 hours.

"He has said that a number of people helped him after his accident. His medical treatment will continue at Max hospital," Dhami said as quoted by ANI.

Locals residing in the area also told the police that several accidents have occurred on that particular spot on the Delhi-Dehradun highway due to the condition of the road.

They revealed that the service lane of the highway hasn’t been made due to which the road becomes short and drivers lose control more often than not while taking turns. The chances of accidents thereby become very high.
