    altogether 7 people on board, based on the report. Obviously the vehicle would have been difficult to control

    6 injured and 1 dead, so 7 people were travelling in a car, by law you cannot take more than 4 people in a car, you can take 5 in a car only if the rear seat has 3*3 point seat belt, their is lot to change in SL

    Some of these drivers are not fit to drive even a bullock carts but they are behind driver's seat and causing all havoc in the country and the authorities are deaf and blind. Innocent people are getting killed daily
