Mangaluru, Feb 9: A tragic incident occurred at Maroli, immediately after the flyover, where a youth lost his life in a two-wheeler accident on the night of Thursday, February 9.
The victim, identified as Terrence D'Souza (21), son of Stanley and Sunitha D'Souza from Kulshekar, met with the fatal accident when he lost balance on a road hump, causing his vehicle to fall onto the road. Sadly, his head struck the road divider, resulting in his untimely demise.
Terrence, who was en route to the petrol bunk to refuel his two-wheeler, was known for his active involvement in social and community activities in and around Cordel. With his helpful nature, he had endeared himself to the people of Kulshekar and had a strong presence as an active member of ICYM, fostering connections among the youth of Mangaluru city and its surrounding parishes. Additionally, he was pursuing his engineering studies at a private college on the outskirts of the city.
The locals have pointed to the presence of an unscientific road hump as a contributing factor to the accident, adding to the tragedy of Terrence's passing. His sudden death has cast a pall of gloom over his family.
