Two killed in separate accidents

Two people, including a student, were killed in separate accidents in the City in the last two days.

Brahmesh Kumar (49), a contractor from BEML Layout, was returning home on his two-wheeler when a cement-laden lorry rammed his bike near the BDA underpass, Nayandahalli Junction, off Mysore Road. The speeding truck then hit nine cars.

A grievously injured Kumar died on the way to a hospital. The accident triggered traffic gridlock on the busy and congested stretch. The lorry driver fled the spot.  Motorists alleged that the 300-foot underpass was poorly lit and demanded streetlights inside the underpass.
