KANPUR: Samajwadi Party MLA from Chail assembly in Kaushambi Pooja Pal had a narrow escape after an SUV in which she was travelling was hit by a speeding container truck on the Agra-Lucknow Expressway in Kannauj district early on Sunday. The vehicle jumped the divider and overturned in the opposite lane. While the MLA, who was going from Lucknow to campaign in the Mainpuri Lok Sabha bye-election, escaped unhurt, other occupants of the SUV, including her security guard, sustained minor injuries. They were later admitted to a medical college in Tirwa.
The Samajwadi Party has included Pooja Pal in the list of its star campaigners for Mainpuri’s Lok Sabha bypoll.
Circle officer (city) Shiv Pratap Singh said that the SP MLA is safe while the driver and a constable were injured. “Initially, they were admitted to Tirwa Medical College, but later they were sent to Lucknow for better treatment. The MLA left for her destination in one of their party leader’s vehicles,” the CO added.
