While returning from Porvorim with her son Skand, Dr. Archana rammed her four-wheeler into a coconut tree off the Porvorim-Mapusa highway. The incident took place at 11.30 am on Tuesday, 5th September 2017. According to the Police, in an attempt to avoid running over the snake, the doctor risked her own life and rammed into the tree.
