One wounded as oil tanker overturns near Sadiqabad

SADIQABAD: At least one person sustained critical injuries when a loaded oil tanker overturned on M-5 motorway near Sadiqabad.

Traffic on that portion of the motorway remained blocked for many hours to avoid any untoward incident.

Shortly after getting information about the incident, the teams of police and administration along with rescue workers rushed towards the site.

The injured person was shifted to a local hospital for medical attention.
