Mangaluru: Negligently driven car kills man sitting beside road

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, May 20: A mobile technician lost his life on the spot after being struck by a car negligently driven by a woman near First Neuro Hospital at Padil.

Harish (43), a technician for Namma Kudla Wizard Cable Network and a resident of Kallapu near Thokkottu, had parked his bike in front of the hospital, was sitting beside the road and talking on his phone when the accident occurred. The driver of a Duster car, approaching from Bantwal, lost control of the vehicle, hit the right-side divider, and collided with Harish after striking his bike. The car continued for 30 meters from the initial impact with the divider, killing Harish instantly.

According to reports, the woman driving the car mistakenly pressed the accelerator instead of the brake after hitting the divider, causing the car to speed up and fatally hit Harish. The collision damaged Harish's bike, which then fell into a roadside drain.

Harish is survived by his wife, two sons, mother, brother, and two sisters. His wife rushed to the scene upon hearing the news. Harish had been at the hospital to collect a bill when the tragic incident occurred.

    When somebody just builds highway after highway, just to create records, without adhering to any sort of safety standards, especially for pedestrians, such accident are bound to happen anytime as unprofessional drivers tend to press the gas pedal as much as they can.....absolutely unable to control the vehicle in an emergency, no doubt even the much hyped Bangalore-Mysuru highway has a designated max speed limit of 100ph; ultimately, it doesn't make any sense to throw money on high end cars when you are not permitted to drive above 100/120 kmph max???

    RIP!! Another day another innocent life gone in a minute; Anything can happen anytime to the innocent pedestrians besides these so called highways on which drivers tend to speed up like nobody's business putting pedestrians and those occupying places besides these roads, at high risk of getting maimed or killed....common in third world places.

    During Siddanna’s rule one can get driving license sitting at home. It is just like giving AK 47 in the hands of a chimpanzee. The unfortunate victim family should get blood money of 1 crore..

    Siddaramayya Government is not responsible for this, RTO must check the licence of all vehicles which driven by ladies and young girls. Most of the ladies learn from their family members without proper channel. RTO must take again test those ladies and girls, and yongstars boys for the safety of public. In Mangalore 60% traffic block in heart of the city because of this types of ladies having half knowledge of driving. Otherwise more death will be on the roads.

    India needs few amendments in few laws, blood money for killing by accidents because of reckless driving, capital punishment for rapists and murders etc. etc. then only people will learn lesson and will shiver about the laws.

    The driver does not understand the brake and accelerator, and an innocent person was killed. The driver should receive severe punishment, and her driving license should be canceled.
