BJP MLA Lokendra Singh has died in a road accident. The mishap took place in Sitapur in Uttar Pradesh when the politician was heading to Lucknow to participate in the Investors Meet. A report on North East Today suggests that the Toyota Fortuner in which Singh was travelling was at a high speed when the accident took place. Lokendra Singh was the Noorpur Legislator from Bijnore who was heading for an event that was to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The accident took place when the Toyota Fortuner crashed head-on with a truck that was coming from the opposite direction. After the accident took place, the District Magistrate Sarika Mohan along with Superintendent of Police, Anand Kulkarni reached the spot. The two security guards and the driver who were in the same car also died in the accident. While Singh and his driver took their last breath on the spot, the two guards died after reaching the nearby medical facility. The two gunners who have died in the accident have been identified as Deepak Kumar, 30 and Brijesh Kumar 28.

Looking at the image, it seems that the front occupants in the car were wearing seat-belts as one can clearly see the airbags getting deployed. This brings to light the fact that technology has its own limitations and for this reason, one should not indulge in irresponsible driving that can be dangerous. The case here involves high speed and hence, we at Express Drives urge our readers to stay in legal speed limits to ensure the safety of themselves as well as the occupants present with them in the car.

Also, we advise you to always buy the safest car that falls within your budget. While manufacturers are now offering safety essentials like ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and airbags even on the lowermost variant of their entry-level cars, the customer also needs to drive responsibly and stay cautious all the time to ensure safety.
