India cricketer Rishabh Pant was badly injured after a terrible car accident that occurred early on Friday. Around 5:30 AM on the Delhi-Dehradun Expressway, Pant’s car crashed into a divider and caught fire as he was travelling to Uttarakhand. Fortunately, Pant’s injuries are not life-threatening as the Police claimed, and he is being closely watched at Dehradun’s Max Hospital for head, back, and foot fractures. Thankfully, the India cricketer is stable despite images of Pant’s burned-out car and Pant lying on a hospital bed with a bloody bandage in his head shocking people.
Within minutes of the accident, Pant’s car caught fire due to the force of the collision with the divider. However, despite being hurt, Pant shattered his car’s windscreen and managed to escape just in time to avoid being killed. Pant was travelling alone in his car to Roorkee when the accident occurred.
According to Pant’s own statement, he dozed off on the stretch. “He dozed off while driving and as a result the car collided with the divider and caught fire. He was moved to the Roorkee hospital from where he has now been shifted to Dehradun,” DGP Ashok Kumar told the media.
