The jeep carrying MP Sanath Jayasuriya collided with a wild boar on the Southern Highway last night, badly damaging the vehicle. However Jayasuriya escaped unhurt.

The incident happened near the 92nd kilometre post at Pinnaduwa. The jeep was reportedly attempting to overtake another vehicle when the collision took place.

Mr. Jayasuriya used another vehicle to travel to Colombo. (D.G.Sugathapala)

    A relative of Sanath collided with his jeep

    Chill Tuesday, 03 December 2013 07:59 AM

    The report clearly says that Jayasuriya escaped unhurt.

    MorninTroll Tuesday, 03 December 2013 08:27 AM

    Yes. This goes down in history as the first time in the world that an animal collided with a vehicle on an expressway.

    ravisandu Tuesday, 03 December 2013 07:06 AM

    Aah, A collision with a wild boar eh?... Didn't some PUS came out?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 03 December 2013 07:04 AM

    What a "bore" he was when he lectured in India about UN probes.

    sam Tuesday, 03 December 2013 07:01 AM

    may be an LTTE funded boar.need investigation

    sadarana Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:58 AM

    I am glad that as a human being sanath is safe and since we have no news on the wild boar only hope its fine. However, regarding the negative comments of the high way all I can say is I wish these people go to countries where the highway is a part and partial of life and check out the number of animals dead. Especially go to Australia take the highway and start counting the number of Kangaroo's sadly lost their lives due to speeding vehicles on the highway. I am not talking of Melbourne/Victoria I am talking of states such as New South Wales and Queensland.

    PRASANNAJIT Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:56 AM

    Now there won't be any trace of the wild boar. No evidence.

    ANTON Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:54 AM

    HAAWZAAAAAT ???

    ANTON Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:53 AM

    WILD BOAR SHOULD BE ARRESTED AND REMANDED UNTIL IT GOES TO THE PARLIAMENT KITCHEN.

    Mangala Tuesday, 03 December 2013 12:00 PM

    Well said, I too was more worried about the boar.

    Mangala Tuesday, 03 December 2013 11:56 AM

    I am totally agreed with you, But all those critics were from jealous, nothing else. These are so called english speaking society. Black whites and mind too colonized. No backbone.

    shan Tuesday, 03 December 2013 11:41 AM

    Regi Tuesday, 03 December 2013 10:13 AM

    It is true to those days Sanath entertained us with his bat. But now after coming into politics he has lowered his popularity. Now he has become a joke.

    Niro Tuesday, 03 December 2013 08:34 AM

    How did animals get onto the Expressway. It is supposed to be fenced. My sympathies with the poor wild boar. Hope and pray it is not injured badly.

    Chugum Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:44 AM

    Blaster Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:25 AM

    Speedy wild boar hit sanath's jeep!

    Sanath Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:17 AM

    We BBQ 'ed the wild boar and claimed the insurance for the damage !

    Suq Madique Tuesday, 03 December 2013 04:20 AM

    Oh, hope the wild boar is ok.

    Sonali De Silva Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:10 AM

    Some of these wild boars are pretty big and strong. He's lucky since it was a jeep, a car would have told a different story. Anyway, its a warning for other motorists.

    Hiran Tuesday, 03 December 2013 05:59 AM

    Just wonder what they would have done with the carcass of the boar?

    kuriosity Tuesday, 03 December 2013 05:58 AM

    its the fault of the boar :)

    Krigalan Tuesday, 03 December 2013 05:50 AM

    Poor wild boar dont know MP dont reduce speed

    Shehan Tuesday, 03 December 2013 05:50 AM

    Was it a head on collision?

    Rohan G Tuesday, 03 December 2013 05:49 AM

    How much 'Pas' came out?

    Ranjith Tuesday, 03 December 2013 05:48 AM

    How ungratfeul our Sri Lankans are, when Sanath was entertaining the cricket fans of this country for them there was nobody like Sanath. When he met with an accident even whether he is not hurt these are the comments we hear from these fellows. What else we can expect from them.
