Woman waiting for daughter's return from school mowed down by car

 A 34-year-old woman was killed when a Maruti Alto, rear-ended by a Toyota Innova, struck her on Tumakuru Road  near Dasanapura around 1.45 pm on Wednesday.  

Sudha, of Dasanapura, had reached the median strip by crossing one half of the road. She was waiting for her daughter to  return from school.  Meanwhile, a Toyota Innova heading towards Nelamangala drove up rashly and  rear-ended a Maruti Alto  moving in the same direction. The driver of Maruti Alto  lost control  of the vehicle. The hatchback  jumped the median strip and  knocked down Sudha, killing her on the spot.  

The drivers of both the cars abandoned their vehicles and fled the spot, fearing public wrath. The Nelamangala traffic police  rushed to the spot and took the body to the government hospital in the town. They have booked both the drivers for causing  accidental death due to rash and negligent driving.
