This event follows similar incident last month where electric bus traveling from Chennai to Bengaluru caught fire after being rear-ended on the Chennai-Bengaluru national highway. Fortunately the passengers were unharmed thanks to the quick response of the bus operator who alerted them about the smoke.
The bus involved in this incident was made by Greencell Mobility. Both events serve as a reminder of the need for safety precautions and awareness when it comes to electric vehicles on the road.
