Mangaluru: Two from Dakshina Kannada perish in car-tipper collision at Channarayapatna

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Jan 15: In an accident which happened on the bypass of national highway 66 in the outskirts of Channarayapatna in Hassan district on Friday January 14, two young men from Dakshina Kannada (DK) district lost their lives. One of them was from Puttur and the other from Bantwal taluk. Another person was injured.

Deviprasad (33) from Ishwaramangala in Puttur taluk working in a private company at Bengaluru and his friend, Sudarshan (30), resident of Kelagina Barebettu in Kolnad village, Bantwal taluk, were killed in the accident. Sudarshan (34) was injured. The accident happened when the three friends were returning home from Bengaluru.

The car turned into a ball of mangled steel in the accident.

The trio had planned a visit to native place on account of the first delivery of Deviprasad's wife. The doctor had given the expected due date for delivery as January 14, it is learnt.

As the car was badly damaged, the people had to work together to bring out the bodies and carry them in an ambulance to a hospital.

Service road work is going on at Channarayapatna and for this purpose, the four-lane road has been converted into two-lane one. Vehicles have to follow one another in a line as a result, which results in accidents when impatient drivers try to move ahead. Road users have been demanding for the completion of the road widening work soon to avoid such accidents.

A case was registerd in traffic police station, Channarayapatna.

    in Mangalore Bangalore highway you will find slow moving trucks especially those carrying petroleum products. Its is not easy to overtake these. it will some times frustrate us but we have to be patient as there is no other go. Theese trucks are very long and sometimes you will find two or three of them moving together. So you have to perfectly understand the distance to cover to overtake, Speed of your own vehicle and also the speed of the opposite vehicle otherwise mishaps can happen. then there are also drivers with road egos and sadists who despite you overtaking substantial portion of the other vehicle will not slow down to give you the space needed. There may be vehicles on the opposite side sometimes increasing speed all of a sudden. one has to take all these into consideration on the Roads.

    Well said, Ganesh Shetty. If the drivers are given these basic instructions to follow strictly, such incidents would be avoided.

    Nowadays no one has patience. If the traffic is slow some drivers overtake & block the roads. This the result of overtaking.

    Roads are OK but not the drivers.In highway one should be very careful in junctions and ghat curves.Young inexperienced drivers take every thing easily.So paying price for negligence.This is the truth.
