Moran police have initiated an investigation into the incident.

The presence of stationary trucks on highways has been a recurring factor in many unfortunate incidents in Assam. These trucks often halt due to technical glitches, creating a potential hazard for other vehicles. Authorities must address the issue of stationary trucks on highways promptly, ensuring that necessary repairs and maintenance are carried out or some warning sign boards are placed near such vehicles to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future.
