Man crashes bike into electricity pole, dies

 A 23-year-old man was killed on the spot after he crashed his bike against an electricity pole on Ring Road in Nagarbhavi on Sunday evening.

The deceased has been identified as Deen Dayal, a native of Haryana. He was residing in Machohalli, North Bengaluru and was an employee with a private factory.

According to police, the accident occurred around 4.45 pm when Dayal was on his way to Machohalli. A speeding Dayal lost control over his bike when he approached Unity Lifeline Hospital and hit the electricity pole.

“He was wearing a poor-quality helmet. The intensity of the crash was so massive that his face was crushed beyond recognition. He would have probably survived with injuries had he been wearing a good quality helmet at the time of the accident,” a Kamakshipalya traffic police sub-inspector told DH.

Post-mortem was conducted at Victoria Hospital and the body was handed over to Dayal’s father, Hukum Singh. Singh buried the body at Sumanalli and left for Haryana, said the police.
