A Road Accident English Short Essay

As a traffic slogan, “Safety first”, may be eminently suitable but as a motto for fife. Many accidents are caused by drivers who ignore the traffic rules and regulations. Most of the people suffer from Speedo – mania and make frantic efforts to beat-other people in the race.

Stringent measures should be adopted to curb such a mad race to prevent reckless driving and over taking. One evening my cousin and I decided to see a film at Capri cinema. As we were late for the show, we began walking faster along the crowded road. The distance from Empress Market to the Capri Cinema is not so long we were in a jolly mood. All of a sudden there was a cry of someone.

When we turned round, we saw a man rolling on the ground. He was knocked down by a car. The driver was driving it at a normal speed. He saw a lorry coming from the opposite direction. He tried to turn the vehicle aside, but the clutch wire of it broke and the machine got out of his control.

It ran into a passerby and hit the pavement. The man was seriously wounded. He sustained injuries in the head and face. His nose was bleeding and his head was bruised. He lost his senses. A host of people had crowded. The man was lying unconscious. He was in a pitiable condition.

We, as well as, other people rushed to the victim to help him. The wounded man was removed to the nearby hospital. Some people started abusing and hitting the car driver. Some wise and elderly men tried to convince them that it was not his fault but it was just an accident.

The police also arrived at the spot. After the mobile of the police had arrived, the mob soon dispersed. But the victim was luckily declared out of danger. We heaved a si ah of relief when we came to know it. We thanked God that his life was saved.
