Due to bad weather, the roads were wet, which led to the skidding of the vehicle, the army said.   

“Owing to the wet road conditions, the driver seems to have lost control over the vehicle and it skidded off the road. The eight injured soldiers were shifted to District Hospital, Shopian, where two were declared dead. One soldier had received minor injuries and was discharged from the hospital,” said PRO, Indian Army.
