An ill fated bus, which was carrying about 40 students from Himachal Pradesh Central University hostels to the university campus, plunged downhill when the driver lost the control and jumped out. Some students sustained minor injuries, while four of them are seriously injured.

The accident took place near the Gaggal airport, about 30kms from the university campus at Shahpur. The driver was apparently over speeding and hit the bus against a Tempo. As the vehicle spun out of control, the driver abandoned it. However, it stopped when it collided with the tree.
