A 42-year-old man died at the Jigme Dorji Wangchuck National Referral hospital (JDWNRH) yesterday after suffering severe head injury in an accident at Semjong, Tsirang.

The incident occurred on July 30.

The man, who worked as the Tsirangtoe gewog agriculture extension officer, died while he was being shifted to the intensive care unit (ICU) from the emergency department after he was referred from Damphu hospital.

The deceased owned the car but a 36-year-old man, who is critically injured, drove the car. The driver also suffered a major head injury and he is admitted at the JDWNRH.

The vehicle toppled 45 metres down the road at Ratokhola, 14km away from Tsirang.  Over speeding is suspected to have caused the accident.
