    Rest in peace brother. I presume this is due to the unscientifically placed metal barriers which are placed near blind curves. Any new driver on this stretch will be confused at these barriers. Another set of barricades near Doopadakatte bus stand also poses danger at night. Hope the concerned authorities resolve these issues before more such incidents happen.
