A driver and a helper were injured today when their truck overturned at the DND flyover near the Yamuna bridge, with the accident leading to huge traffic snarls on the stretch, police said.

The accident occurred at around 2.00 PM due to the bursting of a tyre of the truck, they said.

The truck, carrying whisky cartons, was on its way to New Ashok Nagar from a warehouse in west Delhi, a senior police officer said.

The duo was rushed to the AIIMS Trauma Centre where their condition was stated to be stable, police said.

The incident led to huge traffic snarls on the stretch as the liquor bottles laid scattered on the road.

At 4.45 PM, two cranes removed the truck from the flyover and the road was cleaned but traffic jams remained for a long time on the stretch, police said.

The Delhi Traffic Police worked in coordination with their counterparts from Noida to clear the road, they added.
