A man injured in a car accident on the Srinagar-Bandipora road over the weekend died in a Srinagar hospital late Thursday evening, his family said today.

Irshad Ahamad Sofi, a middle-aged man, was injured when the car he was driving slipped off the road and rolled downhill in Churthung mode near the SK Payeen village in that northern Kashmir district on Sunday.

Sofi suffered severe head injuries while at the same time destroying his car, from which he was pulled unconscious by the locals.

Sofi was immediately taken to the district hospital, where the doctors referred him to SKIMS Soura.

However, Sofi passed away Thursday evening after showing no signs of recovery in the tertiary care facility.
