Three pedestrians including a schoolgirl and a teacher waiting for bus by the roadside were knocked down by a car at the Beratuduwa Junction in Balapitiya this morning.

They were immediately admitted to the Balapitiya Base Hospital.

Hospital sources said that two of them who were in serious condition were transferred to the Karapitiya Hospital. It is alleged that the Galle bound car had attempted to pass the bus that was stopped by the roadside and knocked down the victims.

The residents of the area said the Police STF that rushed to the scene and took the car to the Ambalangoda police. The relatives of the injured said that the number plates of the car were removed at the police station.  

However a senior police officer said that the number plates had been destroyed in the accident. The injured were a student of Balapitiya Revatha National College, a teacher and a woman working at a garment factory in Ambalangoda.

Ambalangoda Police are conducting further inquiries. (Hemantha De Silva)

    The number plates could have been a give-away as to the ranking number of the culprit and in that case this will end up as another unresolved case with an unidentifiable culprit.

    Number plates destroyed by the impact of the accident? Then it must be very very serious. Also the Commissioner of Motor Traffic must investigate this serious complaint of the Police!

    Minister Friday, 04 November 2011 07:05 AM

    Did the car hit an iron pillar for the number plats to be destroyed in that manner?

    Justice has to happen and the culprit booked, but the number plated being taken off is the right thing considering the fact the area which the incident took place. or else the vehicle owners(irrespective of who drove) house will be burnt and even relatives will be harmed. also a lot of newbies have got their hands on four wheels(after tax reduction) having not have driven at all. Very Dangeorous!
