Heart goes out to his family.
My heart felt condolences to the bereaved family. May his soul RIP.

Did your friend fall off the 2 wheeler as a result of the impact and hit the ground. Was he wearing a helmet or was he run over by another vehicle coming in the opposite direction or from behind?

Was he wearing a helmet? Sorry for asking this and I am sure it doesn't mean anything now but just curious since you mentioned he expired on the spot.

R.I.P.

Dear Gannu

He was a Punjabi so was wearing the Turban.

Helmet should have saved him.

Due to the impact, he got thrown from the Activa.

Head hit the divider and the impact was severe. He got hit from behind by a Honda Shine at a high speed.
The Shine person was also serious but at least alive.

Though we don't know the real cause behind this accident, its a fact that cellphones usage is increasing number of such accidents.

Here is another good video on spreading message against cellphone usage while driving:

I read in an article that the bull was hit just 500m into the takeoff roll. Since the runway was unlit and the bull also was black, they couldn't spot it until they hit the animal. If this had happened at a higher speed, or after V1, it would have been tragic IMO.

They couldn't declare which animal exactly hit the aircraft for sometime. The news flash just read aircraft hits animal and aborts takeoff. Only after sometime they came to know it was a bull or a buffalo. Actually a herd of three buffaloes had strayed into the airport area.

On a lighter note I think the pilots would have been made to pay the owner of the buffalo

I travelled by the same road 30 mins ago on my way to office, did not notice anything. Where exactly did this happen ? My circuit is from Maduravoyal till the toll where I take a U turn to reach the Porur link road.

This happened exactly a KM after the lay bye. I passed this section around 08-45pm with crawling traffic and noticed on Google maps that both the corridors were jammed only for a particular stretch on BETL and I assumed that to be some accident.

When I inched closer, I could notice a truck with the KTM loaded on it and a Traffic Police Bolero on the opposite corridor with lot of cops trying to discuss and capture a few things on their registers. With so much presence, I could only guess that the accident may have been fatal.

My condolences to the departed soul.

One of the biggest dangers lurking on these narrow elevated roads is parked vehicles due to breakdown.

In fact only yesterday, the jam started soon after the right handed curve near the lay bye and it came as a real surprise when I could notice stationary vehicles all of a sudden. I can only imagine what would be the case of the biker who may have noticed a parked truck under darkness (street lights here are seldom functional).

I was travelling towards Silk board at the same time and saw the KTM on the surveillance truck and some cops on the other side.
Didn't know it was a fatal accident. RIP the departed soul.

Of Course! Since when was the passenger's head any less fragile than the driver's!

But I do worry about these news reports of bike accidents. I always read that a car/van/bus has rammed a two-wheeler, and I never read that a two-wheel has carelessly and rashly cut across another vehicle, thus causing the accident in which one or more people died. There is something wrong with that always/never proportion.

Was the bike speed a major factor here. It makes sense to ride slow on the left lane in case the road lightings are poor.

Not sure about this at all as the bike was already on the truck and I didn't notice any other vehicle.
Back to back since last 2 days I witnessed the aftermath of 2 accidents which resulted in deaths. There was one more exactly around same time on day before where a Silver Alto soon after getting down from BETL (Towards Silkboard) had hit a pedestrian and traffic was held up for a while. Only when I inched closer, I could notice people shifting the victim onto the rear seat of the Alto and 2 people (never looked like ruffians to me) squeezing into the co-passenger's seat in the front.

As the Alto started moving, I overtook that and realized that it has a broken windscreen with a huge dip along with a dent on the bonnet indicating that the pedestrian may have flew onto the windscreen after colliding.

Sadly, when I read the newspaper today, I realized that it was the same accident at Rupena Agrahara and the victim succumbed to his injuries.

This is 3rd documented incident of 390 accident this month.
Yesterday morning, my colleague mentioned an accident on the BETL flyover which involved a two wheeler. It happened on Tue evening and he was mentioning that the rider had busted his knee cap badly and was bleeding profusely from his injuries. He was screaming in pain and was shifted into an ambulance.

My first thought when i saw this article was if this was the same incident my colleague was referring to but it happened on the previous day.

May the departed soul rest in peace and the injured recover soon.
