Sullia, Jun 23: Four photographers from Mandya met with a serious car accident near Sampaje Gate while returning from a work assignment in Honnavar.

The Volkswagen car they were traveling in lost control and crashed into a protective barrier on the roadside. The impact was so severe that the car was left mangled, with the iron guardrail piercing through the vehicle.

One of the photographers sustained serious injuries and was immediately rushed to a hospital in Mangaluru. Another passenger also suffered significant injuries, while the remaining two passengers escaped with minor injuries.

Local authorities are investigating the incident further.

    City driving and driving on our highways is entirely different---- In city people are forced to drive slow -- traffic jams etc. --- also generally short distance -- no opportunity to drive fast -- NOW highway driving -- apart from speed has various hazards-- which only experienced drivers know about -- Cattle and dogs etc. on the roads -- entering from wrong side-- no clear visible road barriers -- or signs -- highway's suddenly narrowing or diversions - - (getting distracted by talking to other co- passengers -- by the driver while driving fast -- mobile phone -- music etc. -- so very little reaction time for any danger--)-- SO, ALL IN ALL, HIGH CONCENTRATION NEEDED BY DRIVERS ON HIGHWAYS -- a few seconds of loss of concentration can lead to a big disaster--
