Shimla: Three persons were killed on the spot and another three have been injured when a Maruti Alto car lost control and fell into a gorge on the Kingal-Sunni road, on Monday.
Supervising the rescue operation, Sunni SHO Jai Singh from the spot let My Himachal News know that the car was going from Rampur to Shimla.
The vehicle (HP 52A 3884) lost control and fell about 300 feet into the valley near Malgi Pul, he said.
The injured have been shifted to Sunni Primary Health Centre and the dead have been recovered.
The indentities of the injured and the dead was yet to be established and verified, said Jai Singh.
With there being heavy snow on the main highway from Rampur through Narkanda and Theog, motorists in winter often take the all weather Rampur-Kingal-Sunni-Bastanpur route for Shimla.
