The blessings and affection that he has been receiving from the globe are probably the reason why he recently survived a deadly accident while he was returning from Delhi to Roorkee alone in his car.

According to a report by The Times Of India, Pant was driving his luxury Mercedes GLE car when it the divider on the Delhi-Haridwar highway at around 5:30 AM. After the car turned multiple times on the road, it caught fire.

After the locals heard the raging sound of the accident, they rushed to the spot and pulled him out of the fireball that his car had turned into. He was then rushed to Roorkee Civil Hospital for emergency treatment.

According to the superintendent of police (Haridwar) Swapn Kishor Singh, “Pant sustained injuries on his forehead, a hand, and right knee. However, he’s conscious and able to talk. The car he was driving is completely burned. He is lucky to survive the severe accident.”

After getting primary treatment, Pant was reportedly shifted to Max Hospital in Dehradun.

Suspecting Pant slept on the wheel while driving the car, an anonymous cop said, “It is likely that Pant fell asleep while driving because there was no fog on the road which could have affected the visibility. He has a cut on his left eyebrow and a ligament injury on his right knee apart from having bruises on his back.”

The internet was shocked on hearing about Pant’s tragic accident. This is how they reacted:

He was probably going home to celebrate the New Year with his family. We hope Pant is recovering well. Praying for the cricketer.
