Sitting on footpath proves fatal for woman

A 40-year-old woman, sitting on a footpath on Boodigere-Devanahalli main road, was run over by a speeding motorcycle on Tuesday afternoon.

Police have identified the deceased as Muniyamma, 40, a resident of the nearby Gollahalli Gate. The motorcycle rider is Sudhish, 18, a student and resident of Kadugodi.

Muniyamma, who was waiting for a bus to Devanahalli, was sitting on the raised footpath on the main road with her daughter Anisha, 6, and another woman.

Sudhish, who was on his way to Nandi Hills from Bangalore, was speeding when he lost control of the vehicle while trying to avoid another vehicle coming from the opposite direction. He ran over all three people on the footpath.

Sudhish drove into a gutter behind the footpath and was also injured. All injured are being treated at a nearby private hospital.
