SLA vehicle accident injures 3 civilians in Kopay

[TamilNet, Saturday, 22 July 2006, 00:22 GMT]
A mother and her two children were injured when a Sri Lanka Army (SLA) truck travelling at high speed collided with a privately owned passenger van, trapping and injuring the three riding a bicycle in Kopay, Valigamam East, along Jaffna Point-Pedro road at 5:30 p.m. Friday, sources in Jaffna said.

The driver of the SLA truck lost control of the vehicle and hit the van travelling in the opposite direction, local witnesses said.

Ms Raveendra Sivagankai, 32, and her two children Sambavan,7, and Sambavi, 5, from Kopay North, were seriously injured in the incident. They were first taken to Kopay Government Hospital and later transferred to Jaffna Teaching Hospital, hospital sources said.

SLA vehicles often are driven at high speeds to escape the threat of claymore attacks which have become widespread in the last few months in Jaffna district, districts residents say.
