Bantwal, Apr 16: A youth was killed after a bike rammed into a wall on the roadside late night on Saturday April 15.

The deceased has been identified as Vinod Wilson D'Souza (23), a son of Valerian D'Souza, a resident of Melkar House, Mogarnad.

Vinod and another youth were riding from Mudipu to Mogarnad when the accident took place.

The locals rushed the injured to hospital but Vinod breathed his last on the way.

His friend and another person who was standing near the wall sustained injuries and have been admitted to hospital, sources said.

Vinod was working in Muscat and had come down to Mangaluru on a two-month vacation just 15 days ago, sources said.

He is survived by his parents and a brother.

The last rites were held at Mogarnad church on Sunday April 16.

    Incidents like this are expected. All I have to say is to dissuade your loved once from buying/riding two wheelers. If you have one at home, then sell it. Even cheapest car with no safety features is better than a two wheeler.

    Riding at 30mph or 60mph does not matter. If one is riding at 30 mph and no matter how safe that person is in riding a bike... he can get hit by other vehicles on road.

    Two wheelers are inherently not safe. If you make excuses for owning a bike ... then sorry i can't help you and I think nobody else can either.

    These youngsters ride on their bike seating 2 - 3 guys and go for a jolly ride as if they are riding the bike on maidan and not on road. thus losing their valuable and precious life. But the losers are the parents who have to mentally suffer for years together. Very heart moving incident. RIP

    if you want to live long bike speed limit is 30 miles per hour That's my advice if you go over 60 miles per hour you are not going home instead you are going to heaven. please read this message before start the bike. Friendly advice for everyone who rides the BIKE IN MANGALORE SO NARROW ROADES AND SO MANY TRAFFIC. THANKS SORRY. RIP HANDSOME FRIEND

    Banning alcohol, banning motorbikes is ridiculous in my opinion.

    We are a country of un civilised driving culture, bad roads and corruption related to transport and automobile industry to name a few.

    Too much is too bad always, whether it is alchohol or two wheeler ride. Self restraint is the only best solution, if one wants to live in this world = anand
