A truck carrying ice overturned on the Sion-Panvel highway near Mankhurd on Wednesday morning, affecting traffic movement on the route.

According to sources, the incident took place around 9 am when the truck was heading south towards Chembur.

When it reached the flyover near Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) in Mankhurd, the driver allegedly lost control of the vehicle, which caused it to overturn.

The truck was carrying blocks of ice, which also fell on the road following the mishap.

Local police immediately reached the spot and started diverting traffic from the flyover. However, since the overturned truck had blocked a major part of the south-bound lane, traffic movement from Mankhurd to Chembur was impacted.

Some commuters reported taking around 30 minutes to travel from BARC flyover to Anushakti Nagar.

Work on removing the truck is underway as of 10:30 am. Meanwhile, no injuries have been reported as of publishing this report.

Further details are awaited.
