On Friday, 15 September 2023, a bus carrying a team of Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) corporators met with an accident in Jammu. As per sources, a brake failure is said to be the reason for this accident. Fortunately, no injuries were reported during the mishap.
The corporators, on their study tour, were travelling on four buses. Due to a sudden brake failure, one of the buses collided with another and bumped into a footpath. After the accident at Jammu, an alternate bus was immediately arranged for the GVMC corporators to continue their tour.
