A video of an accident on a flyover is being shared on social media with a claim that it is from Hyderabad.
“Oil tanked got fired up and burst on gachibowli flyover, Hyderabad,” the Facebook post read.
NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the claim to be misleading.
We extracted keyframes of the video and found that the same video was uploaded on YouTube on December 5, 2020.
“pune warje bridge #accident blast #PUNEKAR” the title of the video read.
We also found another video of the same incident taken from a distance. “Pune city Today warje side Fly over bridge one vehicle catch Fire 🔥 It’s not blast it’s accident,” the title of the YouTube video, uploaded on December 5, 2020, read.
Based on this, we ran a keyword search and found a report by TOI dated December 6, 2020. As per the report, the truck caught fire on the Warje flyover. However, no one was injured in the incident.
This viral video is not of Gachibowli flyover. It is a FALSE news.
It had happened on the Warje bridge, Pune a few days back.
No such incidents have occurred in Hyderabad.
