Two separate road accidents claimed four lives in the City, on Tuesday.
Two died on the spot and another injured, in an accident involving a BMTC bus, a two-wheeler and a car near Johnson Market on Hosur Road, while, a kid and a priest were killed in an accident, on Banaswadi Main Road.

Sher Singh (30) and his brother-in-law Uday Singh from Delhi, both tile workers and residents of Yemlur, were killed on Hosur Road. Shubho Das (28), driver of a car which was also involved in the accident, was injured and is admitted at St Philomena’s Hospital.
According to A Nagappa, ACP Traffic Central: “A big 10 BMTC bus was going towards Electronics City and Sher Singh and Uday Singh who were on a two-wheeler, were coming from Koramangala. Their two-wheeler got stuck at the median near Baldwin School, due to poor light. The bus driver, while trying to avoid hitting them, turned right. But, he lost control and hit the two-wheeler instead. A car, which was behind the two-wheeler, also came under the bus and was badly damaged.”

Anjani Kumar H, from Hebbagodi, who was in the bus at the time of the accident, said, “I rushed out and found two persons beneath the bus. One of them had died on the spot and the other was alive. But he could not be saved and died soon.”
Roads leading to the accident spot were blocked for sometime and traffic was diverted. Traffic resumed after the bus was pulled out by a crane.

Two more killed
A killer-stretch on Banaswadi Main Road claimed two lives in a short span.
Naveen Kumar (11), a 6th standard student of New Clarence Public School near Frazer town, and his mother Rathnamma, were on their way home, after celebrating Dasara at their uncle’s house near Hunasmaranahalli, Yelahanka.
Around 7 am, they alighted from a bus near the fire station and were walking past the Panchamukhi Ganesh temple.

Pavan Kumar informed the police that while he was riding a two-wheeler, another person on two-wheeler, came speeding from the opposite direction.
In an attempt to avoid the speeding bike, Pavan Kumar steered his vehicle to the left and lost control and the bike jumped on the footpath, knocked down Naveen Kumar, and hit a tree. An injured Naveen Kumar was shifted to a hospital in Kalyan Nagar, but was declared brought dead.

Meanwhile, the other rider abandoned the vehicle and vanished from the spot.
The police seized the two-wheeler and it is found that it belongs to one, D T Datar. A relative of Rathnamma told Deccan Herald, “After her husband deserted her, in order to pursue her son’s education, Rathnamma had taken up a helper’s job in the same school where her sons studied and had devoted her entire life for her son.”
The previous night, in a hit-and-run case, Ramanand (52), a priest had died in an accident on the same stretch.

Police said the accident occurred around 8 pm within a furlong where Naveen Kumar was killed. A moped knocked down the priest and disappeared in the darkness.
