An unfortunate accident occurred on May 1 on the Dushanbe-Khujand-Chanok highway, which passes through the Ainu district of the Sogd region. "Starex" vehicle got into a fatal collision while driving from the district center of Aini to Penjikent. The rescue team from the Emergency Rescue Committee in the Zeravshan zone of the district arrived on the scene and discovered that the driver failed to control the car and ended up falling into a 200-meter gully.
With the help of mountaineering equipment, rescuers descended into the ravine, using special tools, removed the bodies of the driver and five passengers from the conquered car, and handed it to the law enforcement authorities. Three or two children and a woman with various injuries were taken to Aini District Hospital.
In this connection, the Committee on Emergency Situations and Civil Defence of the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan reminds drivers to be as careful as possible and to adhere to all the rules of the road and the speed regime.
