In the early hours of Wednesday, one elephant in the Keonjhar district of Odisha tragically lost its life after being struck by a speeding truck on a national highway. When the truck struck the elephant, it was crossing NH-49 close to the Ghatagaon forest range, in the Kantabada area.

Additionally, it was alleged that morning fog caused restricted vision, which is why the crash occurred in spite of a cautionary order. Road deaths occur when trucks and buses traveling on NH-49 in the Kantabada area ignore the speed bumps. "An elephant died while crossing NH-49 near Kantabada after being struck by a truck in Odisha's Keonjhar in the wee hours of Wednesday," the description of the video uploaded by PTI states.
