The vehicle in which former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and his wife were travelling met with an accident at Denagama in Hakmana this morning, the Police said.
They said the vehicle, which collided with a land-master hand-tractor, veered off the road and crashed into a wayside tree.
The Police said Mr Rajapaksa and his wife escaped unhurt and the land-master driver, who was injured, was admitted to the Walasmulla Hospital.
The driver of the jeep was taken into custody. (Text and pic by Krishan Jeewaka Jayaruk and Yasantha Ariyasena)

Arrest the tractor driver immediately! Didn't he know that ' IT' has returned and that we all need to turn into by roads and look the other way when 'IT' travel around?

THis dude could not even afford to but a Nissan Sunny(Sentra0 in the USA from his minimum wage salary in the gas station. So How could he can buy a $340000 Land Cruiser? No class, uneducated Rajapakses steal money, promote drugs and thugs. People who vote for them are idiots-probably the most dumbest people on the planet!!!!

Let us be human above all else. Our prayers to all. Hope this is not a fixed accident like what hapoened to Diana. One never knows. I am glad a son of the soil who is worthy and has served our nation escaped unhurt. Long life!
