Tamil Nadu BJP MLA Vanathi Srinivasan's 22-year-old son Adarsh had met with an accident. Luckily he escaped with minor injuries, looks like a rollover.

Where the heck was the bus driver driving . In India laws are too lenient if general public dies because of others fault.

Really feel sorry for the people in India who loose their lives for no fault of theirs on roads.

Bengaluru: Car hits bike on flyover, two riders fall 40ft to death

Source : TOI

Quote:
A man and woman on a bike died as they were thrown off the Electronic City Elevated Expressway in an accident around 9.45pm on Tuesday. The identity of the victims is yet to be ascertained.

The accident occurred when a speeding Baleno hit the bike from behind, tossing the man and woman off the elevated expressway onto the surface road, some 40 feet below. Both died on the spot due to severe head injury.

The car driver was trying to overtake another vehicle when he lost control and hit the road median, initial investigations revealed. The car then swerved left, hit the couple on the bike and came to a halt after hitting the wall of the expressway.

The couple from Tamil Nadu had stopped their two-wheeler on a layby on the flyover when a speeding Maruti Baleno hit them from behind...

The car, which has been seized, was being driven by a young man in his early twenties who has been admitted to a hospital and is currently recovering.

The CCTV grab shows the couple bikers pushing the bike the wrong way when the incident occurred. Might be a case of breakdown and trying to move to the lay bye for safety. I am unable to upload the same here. Let the departed souls rest in peace
This happened as I was riding to work yesterday night. The Kudlu junction signal was red just before this incident and saved some more people at the bottom as the debris in form of pipes and concrete fell on an empty road.
As the signal opened, an Audi, a Duke 200 and me on the D390 took off only to get squeezed by the Audi to the right and then I saw debris falling down and bodies fly down onto the service road. It was scary as the couple hit the tarmac with great force and lay motionless. Luckily no one on the service road too got injured. I was shit scared looking at what happened.

As per this news the wagonR driver seemed to have lost control and was veering left and right(possible aquaplaning due to high speed ?) and the bus driver tried to get out of its way by going in the opposite direction but the wagonR crashed in.

Must have been a shocking experience and a close call for you. A bunch of anomalies that can only happen in our state of affairs:
  • First a flyover was designed without a shoulder space and the NHAI at least had the brains to ban two wheelers and non motor vehicles
  • Two wheeler users protested and it became one of the only toll booths to charge money for two wheelers and the whole idea of not having enough space for more than two lanes was ignored
  • People tend to run out of fuel on top of the flyover or end up in breakdowns. If one isnt sure about the condition of the vehicle as well as fuel, why take the risk of going on the flyover when they are aware that there is absolutely no exit until the end
  • But in this case, looks like CCTV points out to the car losing control and the couple were on the laybye itself. That definitely puts a bigger blame on the car.
  • Finally, coming to the car driver, no idea what was the drivers condition before the accident, but either he was not in his senses, or his car had a tyre burst which veered the car off the path into the lay bye.

I wonder when everyone starts understanding these things. Each party has a role to play. And this is not the first time we have had people and two wheelers being launched off the flyover.

This was uploaded to YouTube sometime back:



They don't seem to be pushing their bike. It looks like they were already in the by lane when the accident happened.

Edit: Not sure what move the car driver was trying to pull. He seems to have a clear left lane in front of him to do his illegal overtake. Can't figure out what made him loose control.

First off, they should stop people from stopping and sight seeing in the laybye. From the time this flyover had opened, there are people stopping there like they do in some ghat section view point and even having a smoke.
Not blaming the unfortunate couple, but a laybye is not meant for taking a break.

And even more worse, the cops checking for over - speeding from the lay-bye.

Just speculating. May be wrong here!

Looks more overtaking gone wrong for the Wagon R than the bus. The car is pointing to the left supposedly trying to go back into his lane and the bus apparently with its wheels turned to the right simply could not avoid a last minute manoeuvre to avoid crashing and in the process skidding to the wrong lane.

Also am surprised there is no damage on the bus. Goes on to show how tough the bus chassis is and how cars have no chance in a head on

The second picture is before or after the fire? It shows no sign of getting burnt and looks fresh and clean.

There is another video which shows they were pushing the bike towards opposite direction. But yes, they were already on the by lane when they got hit. Wondering what made them to come back. Ran out of fuel/break down or just for time pass. Quite unfortunate if it was the latter. RIP.

The car almost at the verge of falling down:

Isn't that the whole purpose of having lay-bys on roads?

Maybe on a highway, yes, but I don't think on this elevated flyover. From what I remember when the flyover was opened, was that it was meant for breakdowns and emergencies. If I remember well, the cops had even cordoned off the lay-bye for a while to prevent people from stopping unnecessarily.
