Fuel crisis takes yet another life

The driver of a three-wheeler died earlier today (16) in Panadura, after waiting in a fuel queue for two days.

The victim, identified as a 53-year-old father of three, had been at the Egoda Uyana filling station with another three-wheeler driver the previous day, and had arrived at the Wekada petrol station around 07:00 pm last night.

The victim is believed to have suffered from a heart attack while having dinner with a fellow three-wheeler driver and was subsequently rushed to the Panadura Base Hospital. He, however, was pronounced dead by this time, a hospital official said, adding that he had passed on the way.
