Udupi, Jun 19: In a serial accident at Kadiyali here on Monday June 19, a car rammed into another car and two two-wheelers after one of its tyres burst.

A Maruti Eco car bearing Kerala registration was plying from Manipal towards Udupi, when, on reaching Kadiyali, it suffered a tyre burst.

The car went out of the driver's control and rammed into a Maruti Celerio car parked nearby. It then hit a parked Discovery bike and a scooty.

The occupants of the car, which included, besides the driver, two children and an elderly lady, escaped with minor injuries.

The rider of the scooty was just parking his two-wheeler when the accident took place. He too suffered minor injuries, sources said.

The bike that the car hit into was parked near an electric pole. If the bike had not been there to buffer the impact, the car would have hit the electric pole and the damage would have been worse, the locals observed.

The driver of the car has been identified as Umar.

As soon as the accident took place, locals gathered in big numbers and traffic was affected for sometime.

Udupi traffic police arrived at the spot and registered a case.

    Nowadays, new cars come with TPM (Tire Pressue Monitoring system). So if the tire pressure is below normal TPM indicator glows up in the dashboard and there is enough time to repair/replace the damaged tire & it saves lives. I hope the govt., makes it compulsory for all vehicles.

    No doubt speed is the main cause for these type of accidents . Over taking the vehicle is another main reason for occurring accidents . It is also observed that the majority people driving the four wheel and two wheel vehicles are not adhering to the traffic rules. Nowadays even pedestrians are not safe at all. Our system for issuing new driving licences is not proper. Traffic department is not creating awareness among people seeking new driving licence. Traffic department should check the vehicles on the roads to know whether the person driving the vehicle is in possession of driving licence or not. many a times youngsters drive the vehicles after consuming alcohol endangering the lives of others. I hope that traffic department will take stern action to implement the control on the reckless driving.

    Thank God that no one was seriously injured or killed in this serial accident. The pictures posted by Daijiworld's Umesh Marpalli shows no one was in the path of the accident. Only three vehicles were damaged.

    My suggestion to everyone- Kindly switch to tubeless tires. Tube-type tires are less likely to withstand tire burst as also tube burst/puncture. Also, maintain the minimum air pressure in your tires to prevent tire flexing.
    Note: Following a tire blast (not tube blast), the driver loses total steering control irrespective of his driving experience.

    with tube or tubeless tyre but speedy driving is more dangerous. in this case he was in overspeed. traffic police should monitor this kind of case.
