Mangalore, Jul 4: Among the many accidents that place on city roads and highways, most happen due to one reason - not following traffic rules.
In an accident that brought to light the hazards of talking on mobile phone while driving, a car almost fell into a drain even as its driver was busy on phone.
The accident occured on Thursday July 4 near Pumpwell when the driver of the Maruti Ritz car was about to park the vehicle outside a private hospital.
The driver was reportedly trying to steer the car with one hand, while his other hand was holding the phone. The car went out of control and veered off to the left, eventually moving over a drain.
There were three other passengers in the car, and together, they moved the car out. No one was hurt in the incident. Luckily, the car stopped at the right spot, as the damage would have been worse if the car had moved further.
