Heavy showers in many parts of the country have once again caused a whole lot of inconvenience to people at large. And even as the monsoon season continues to make its presence felt, the need for safe driving practices have been underlined. A video of a Maruti Swift skidding off the Chhindwara-Nagpur Highway and then toppling into a field is a case in point.

Nakul Kamal Nath, Member of Parliament from Madhya Pradesh, took to Twitter to share the clip of the accident along with a post in which he stated that he received information regarding a car that lost control on the Chhindwara-Nagpur Highway after heavy rainfall. “Everyone in the vehicle is safe which is a relief," he added.

Madhya Pradesh has been receiving heavy rainfall for the last few days. In a recent report, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) reportedly stated that this rainfall is being caused due to a turf line that is coming from Jaipur and Gwalior and because of it, circulation has been created over the Bay of Bengal sea. This is leading to rainfall in the eastern parts of the state rather than the western parts. “Also, the frequency will increase in the coming days. So, heavy rain activity is expected in the coming days. It will remain for the coming 2-3 days," said the department.
