A bus and a car plunged into a huge crater that was formed in the middle of Chennai’s busy Anna Salai, also known as Mount Road on Sunday.
It is suspected that the crater must have been formed because of the metro rail work.
Initial reports suggest that around 35 people were inside the bus, and sustained minor injuries. Some of them were taken to the Royapettah Government Hospital.
Since it was a Sunday, there was very less traffic on the road.
The cave-in occurred due to tunnel boring work for the Chennai Metro rail that is being carried out between Thousand Lights and AG- DMS.
This is the second such road cave-in on Anna Salai in ten days.
Police have cordoned off the stretch from White’s Road turning to the foot of the flyover on Anna Salai.
