The actor, who recently joined the saffron party clarified that the container truck rammed into her vehicle when her car was proceeding on the right lane of the highway. The container truck ''came from nowhere'' and rammed into her car, she said adding police are investigating the mishap and questioning the driver to rule out any foul play.
"#LordMurugan has saved us. My husband''s trust in him is seen," she added. Assuring her fans and party workers that she is safe, Sundar said she was continuing her journey towards Cuddalore about 189 km from here.
Police could not be contacted immediately on the matter. Days ago, when she tried to visit Cuddalore for the yatra, Sundar was detained by police near here.
