PTC News Desk: A tragic incident took place  on Chandigarh Road in Ludhiana, Punjab, on Tuesday morning as a tipper collided with a woman riding a scooter, leaving her injured on the road, drenched in blood. The impact of the tipper's tires caused severe injuries to her hands, legs, and thighs. The victim, identified as Kirti Arora, had been married for only four months.
