Bengaluru: Two people died on the spot, while three others, including a woman, were injured when a lorry jumped a median and crashed into a car near Singasandra on Hosur Main Road late on Saturday night.

The lorry driver was trying to avoid a stray dog running on the middle of the road, leading to the accident, the police said.

 

The deceased have been identified as Srinivas (30) and his brother Rajendra (28), both of whom were assistants in the lorry. The lorry driver, Rajappa, and another assistant, were injured in the accident and have been shifted to St John’s Hospital.

A software engineer, Srihari from Infosys, and his wife, Sudhamani, had a narrow escape when the lorry, jumping over the median from the other lane, crashed into their car around 11.40 pm. Sudhamani sustained minor injuries, the police said.

The lorry (KA05 AD 6624) was coming towards the city from Hosur, while the couple was returning home from Coimbatore. The police said that the lorry, which was carrying concentric dust to Koramangala, was over speeding.

 

When the stray dog ran in front of the lorry near Singasandra suddenly, the driver swerved right trying to avoid it and lost control of the vehicle. The lorry crashed through the median, overturned on the other side of the road and came to a screeching halt after hitting the car.  

The two assistants Srinivas and Rajendra died on the spot, while driver Rajappa and his other assistant suffered minor injuries. Srihari’s car was completely damaged in the accident, and the stray dog too was killed, the police said.

Traffic movement on the busy Hosur Road was disrupted for sometime. The Electronics City police rushed to the spot and cleared the truck, restoring the traffic flow.  

 

The police have seized the truck and registered a case at the Electronics City traffic police station.
