Mangaluru: Speeding car jumps divider, crashes into vehicles, injures woman


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Apr 9: In a bizarre incident that occurred at Ballalbagh in the city on Saturday April 9, a woman who was riding a two wheeler was critically injured as a speeding BMW car jumped over a divider and crashed into two cars and two wheelers which were being driven on the other side of the road. Another woman who was standing on the divider to cross the road escaped unhurt by a whisker.

The person driving the car has been identified as Shravan Kumar (30) from Mannagudda who runs an interior decoration business at Derebail.

The injured lady is identified as Preethi Manoj (47). Another boy, Amay Jayadevan (7), who was in another car, suffered minor injuries. Both were admitted to a private hospital.

Mangaluru west traffic police station has taken up a case under Section 279 / 338 Indian Penal Code.

Speaking to media police commissioner N Shashi Kumar said, “The accident took place at 1.20 pm here. The injured lady is in the ICU while the boy is safe. Shravan has been taken into custody. He will be subjected to alcohol and drug tests.”

The whole scene of the car jumping over the divider and getting onto the other side of the road is captured on a CCTV camera installed nearby.

Some shops which were on highways, opened up new ones on the adjacent roads.

We all are responsible for allowing it to grow to this level. Check outside every educational institute like college and see the reality. Not on the main road , little inside.

    @ Pradeep, Mangalore. This is an excerpt from Indian Express 2017. "And while drunk driving accidents had only a tiny share of accidents as a whole, they were the deadliest — there were more fatalities in accidents due to drunk driving than in accidents due to other causes." Thus, as many as 42% of victims of drunk driving accidents ended up dead — a much higher rate than the percentage of deaths in accidents caused by “over-speeding” (30%), “reckless driving” (33%), and weather conditions (36%). Guess it explains.

    Reckless driving in the city. I blame our MCC and traffic department. They have made dividers ok, but they should have made fance over that. Now the Pedestrian are crossing everywhere as they like. MCC has given a provision to cross anywhere. That also make lot of difficulties to all. My request with MCC is to install fence allover in the city avoid accidents.

    I see people commenting on banning alcohol, the vehicle, Registration, divider, road humps etc what nobody is talking about how the law encourages such behavior. This guy who has maimed and almost killed a human will go Scott free with inconsequential punishment. Additionally I would like to point out glaring gaps in implementation of policing - the police themselves are ignorant of trafffic rules and best practices world wide, plus they don’t execute the laws to hold vehicles and drivers accountable - their reputation is so bad that no one blinks and eye while breaking laws such as drinking and driving. Those from Middle East - dare they drive after drinking ?? No! Why ? Because cops there are known to be very tough on violations. In India - all goes,… do cops have any credibility at all ???

    If banning alcohol ensures zero traffic accidents.. then yes sure this is sounds like a good tactic initially. As some communities do not consume alcohol. do you think people from these communities do not cause accidents. Also there are a lot of traffic accidents in Counties which have banned alcohol as well. The cause of accidents are almost always people (except for cow, dog, cat related interference ). The people causing accidents most of the times are irresponsible people these people not aware of their responsibility which come with while driving/riding a vehicle.. And yes responsible people will not drink before they drive. the person driving here is reckless, most likely he would be driving the same way even without alcohol.

That poor lady might lose her life for no fault of her own, and the person responsible for that clearly has has no fear of police or the law. If he had, he wouldn't have driven so negligently risking others lives. People like him think they can get away by throwing money. Public acted rightly, especially here there is no dispute who is at fault. Hard to imagine what her family must be going through now. When they don't fear law or care about others lives,it's better they fear public atleast henceforth. He deserved more thrashing for playing with so many lives. The way he drove, some of them were lucky to be unhurt.

The detector should be connected to Programmable Logic Controller which controls vehicle start-up, operation, PLC should be programmed once detector sensed alcoholic presence vehicle should not be start (The chances are there to manipulate i mean to say override and succeed to start) even if started later stage for sure detector will sense the alcoholic presence and give command to Programmable Logic Controller. If Programmable Logic Controller executing good innovative service on production field, industry, marine field, oil and gas industry, robotic service, so why not in vehicle field. Here we can imagine driverless vehicles existing, if manufacturer produce this technology why not Anti alcoholic technology to avoid accidents. It is just my concern about alcoholic drivers to avoid accidents. Even though great technology will not change our Karma & destination.

Blaming everything in alcohol is not right (I'm not supporting the person here so don't get me wrong). I don't drink also but that doesn't make a good driver either. Wish a speedy recovery to the lady and hope justice is delivered. If it's proved that the person was high on alcohol or any other substance @ 1:30pm, then he should not be provided bail until the lady is fully recovered and he should bear all medical expenses of her.

    @ Pradeep, The biggest causes of accidents in Saudi Arabia are due to excessive speed, high temperature which literally even melts the tar and rips off the tyres and with heavy vehicles on the highways. We don't see someone knocking off some innocent soul over a divider at this speed within city limits. This looked literally out of a Vin Diesel movie. His speed might not have been less than 80-100 kms/hr. If you look at the history of all the horrible accidents in India 70-75% are due to alcohol or may be even more. You feel the pain only when you lose someone of your own in an accident.

    Dear Sameer from Riyadh, I agree with you in principle if all those who get drunk will inevitably cause accidents and they all get behind the steering wheel. Most importantly, we do not have the luxury of drilling oil so that state Govt coffers can be filled with it; our hope of filling coffers is by selling Yenne derived from sources grown on ground. We function in the hope that more people drink in our state or buy land. Even in the place from which you are passing this naive order, they are calling Salman and Disha Patani in the hope of monetizing the deserts which will never yield oil in the coming years and they could generate revenue through tourism.

Most of the government revenues are from the taxes, fees, penalties, VISA's and Tourism. Indirectly the Indian government wants to fill it's coffers at the cost of human life. Is that what you are saying?
