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)

    Escaped?
    what does that mean? did the boar chased the MP all along the expressway?
    Imagine what a sight would that be? A bloody bold politician chased by a wild boar.

    International intervention in local matters. Wild boar from UK.

    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.

    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.

    Chris Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:13 AM

    Paul Walker died :( n sana lives :( wht a sad world

    Sanath Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:17 AM

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

    Blaster Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:25 AM

    Speedy wild boar hit sanath's jeep!

    Ramani Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:29 AM

    Why no insurance cover?

    mIrfan Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:39 AM

    this was done purposely to get a new vehicle bought for CHOGM

    Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:40 AM

    Wild Boar in Southern expressway and wild elephants on the runway in Mattala. What a wild saga.

    The God Father Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:41 AM

    Where the animal activists? Sue him negligence.

    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.

    Chugum Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:44 AM

    Well as a matter of fact, two!

    kajaya Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:48 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 06:48 AM

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

    Kay Parker Tuesday, 03 December 2013 02:55 PM

    The Poor Pig!!!!

    ANTON Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:53 AM

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

    ANTON Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:54 AM

    HAAWZAAAAAT ???

    insider Wednesday, 04 December 2013 08:00 AM

    No, it was his dinner.

    PRASANNAJIT Tuesday, 03 December 2013 06:56 AM

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

    RohanR Tuesday, 03 December 2013 10:42 AM

    Holy Cow?

    sanjaya dias Tuesday, 03 December 2013 10:43 AM

    may be selin arranged wild bore to give him wild punishment.

    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.

    sam Tuesday, 03 December 2013 07:01 AM

    may be an LTTE funded boar.need investigation

    Chill Tuesday, 03 December 2013 07:59 AM

    The report clearly says that Jayasuriya escaped unhurt.

    Mutu Tuesday, 03 December 2013 04:37 AM

    Speaks volumes about safety on the Southern highway constructed below acceptable standards.

    John Tuesday, 03 December 2013 04:39 AM

    ....the wild boar must have been speeding.

    Aja Tuesday, 03 December 2013 04:45 AM

    Ayio enough Money to buy a new one only poor fellows suffer ...

    hemantha Tuesday, 03 December 2013 08:07 AM

    A relative of Sanath collided with his jeep

    Gamini Tuesday, 03 December 2013 08:10 AM

    If this guy read all these comments he (hope) can realise how his reputation gone to below ZERO.....SLs foolish political system brings shame to my land....

    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.

    Mangala Tuesday, 03 December 2013 12:00 PM

    Yes, this is their job all the time, criticizing others, while having truck load of dirt on their head.

    Independent Tuesday, 03 December 2013 04:55 AM

    Looks like even the 4 legged variety is not safe from this guy

    MorninTroll Tuesday, 03 December 2013 08:26 AM

    Pas came out of the wild boar and landed on the sanath's thatte.. then he said 'I see the gus'

    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.

    Reverberates Tuesday, 03 December 2013 04:58 AM

    Owa sulu dheyak!

    MorninTroll Tuesday, 03 December 2013 08:28 AM
