The accident took place early in the morning in Dungargarh when the bus was on its way to Jaipur from Bikaner.

Gulab Nabi Khan, SHO, Seruna police station, who was at the accident spot told The Times of India, "Cranes are used to separate the two overturned vehicles. The bus was full and that is why we have a lot of injured people."
