    Was passing by minutes after the accident. Actually the other side of the road was closed for traffic during that time, so no fault of the truck.

    The Roads should have lanes marked on it.
    This would surely prevent many Accidents.
    Rash n Negligent Driving (like Rapes) should NOT be Tolerated...

    Tragic loss of lives. Safety is minimal. Innova is a bigger and better to travel yet the tragedy. Also please note large number of keralites are occupying land in Mangalore and Udupi districts as prices are far higher at Gods own country. They are grabbing large tracts of govt land also illegally.

    Avinash from Kerala, Instead of watching others personal life Bajaranga Dala should do traffic control job and cleaning the roads. Jenny Mangalore is 100% correct.

    In continuation to Mr.Clifford's comment,the lorry appears to be on the correct side & to the extreme left. Car should have been careful.

    Accidents mostly ends up in a death scar or a serious injury to one's life. Most of the time the accidents will occur because of excess speed, carelessness,overtaking and sometime the risk of road deviations.Always Drive cautiously and to reach your point too safely.

    I have been to Udupi recently, the roods are just like deadly constructions. Sign boards are not up to the mark, dividers are hardly visible. Diversions are horrible. Apart from all, the drivers are just careless without knowing the speed they drive and having no knowledge of deep diversions ahead on the roads. Overtaking without having clear visibility. Unfortunately, majority of drivers are not aware of these rules as they are not thought while receiving licence.
