Mangaluru, Jul 31: A serial accident took place near Madaninagar of Kuthrar, late night on Friday July 30, due to reckless driving by a car driver. An auto-rickshaw and a car were damaged and the driver of the auto-rickshaw also suffered injuries.

A Honda car that was being driven at high speed from Deralakatte towards Mangaluru collided against the auto-rickshaw that was approaching from the opposite direction. The driver of the Honda car could not control the car due to the impact and hit another car which was occupied by medical students. Auto-rickshaw driver Mohammed Mansoor (35), resident of Deralakatte Badyar is seriously injured. His auto rickshaw was completely mangled in the collision.

The car which was carrying medical students was also damaged. However, the students had a providential escape. The driver of the Honda car which caused the accident, locked the car and escaped from the spot. Locals accuse that the driver of the Honda car was driving under the influence of alcohol.

Nagori traffic police reached the spot and confiscated the car. It is also accused that the spot where the accident took place has many potholes and this might be the reason also for the driver of Honda car to lose control.

Later, it was identified that the Honda car was driven by Karate Master Dharanappa, resident of Vittal Kepu.

    The kuthar junction fully flawed ..One does not know from which side vehicles move .. A small junction ..very few vehicles ..yet too many accidents .. While constructing highways even basic level of understanding is not there as to positioning of dividers or road diversion towards joining roads to diversion ..Its not problem of govt ..its problem of technical engineers ..they work without applying and being committed to the work they are doing . There is lack of supervision and audit ..NEver take a holistic view while start of the project ..just work in bits and pieces .. India has a real work culture problem. No safety standards .no quality .They miss out even on some basic .. Maybe deliberately done or carelessness as it a govt project and all that is there is change of bribe money? The drivers too are careless and lack basic driving manners ..wrong side driving ..high speed even on narrow and unmotorable roads ,no lane discipline

    sense -shetty odipu,with all potholes ,one can drive but not with high speed as this fellow done.He must have thought he is in carate school and practicing carate.Even after accident he dares to close himself and escape too.Such a coward.Thinks noone will know .Must have either on drugs or alcohol.Otherwise not possible to have such a accident.Thank God no person was killed .Hope and pray the injured person may get healthy soon ,

    Please register a case against PWD also. Those potholes are there from so many time that it has become a landmark.

    Please register the case against auto rickshaw driver also for riding the auto rickshaw in the opposite direction. I think our traffic law should be amended, it should include heavy fine and cancellation of permit and licence etc..

    Tilak, for your information auto driver was driving his auto in opposite direction which means he was driving from Mangalore to deralakatte ,it doesn't mean that he was driving in the same lane as the car , I believe car lost control and came into the auto lane , please correct me if I'm wrong anywhere
