Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Woman Fatally Injured and Child Hurt in BMTC Bus Crash at Silk Board Junction

In a tragic incident, a woman lost her life while two others, including an 18-month-old infant, sustained injuries when a Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) bus collided with a two-wheeler on the Madiwala Flyover at the Silk Board junction. The accident, which occurred at around 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, has left the victim’s family devastated.

The deceased has been identified as Seema, a 21-year-old woman. Her husband, Gurumurthy, and their young son, Ganvi, managed to escape with minor bruises. The family was on their way to attend a Pro-Kabaddi tournament when the fatal incident took place. The grieving husband, Gurumurthy, has alleged that the BMTC driver was negligent, resulting in his wife’s untimely demise.

Preliminary investigations suggest that the BMTC bus driver may have attempted to change lanes and failed to notice the approaching two-wheeler from behind, leading to the collision. The impact was severe, instantly claiming Seema’s life. Her body has been transferred to St John’s Hospital for post-mortem examination, and once the necessary formalities are completed, it will be handed over to her grieving family.

While the exact cause of the accident is still under investigation, authorities have filed a case at the Madiwala Traffic Police Station. The BMTC bus driver and conductor, however, fled the scene of the accident, adding a layer of complexity to the ongoing investigation. Law enforcement agencies are diligently working to locate and bring the culprits to justice.

This tragic incident serves as a grim reminder of the importance of road safety. It highlights the need for drivers, especially those operating public transportation vehicles, to exercise utmost caution and adhere to traffic regulations. The loss of a young life and the injuries sustained by an innocent child are a stark reminder of the devastating consequences that can result from negligence on the road.

The local community and authorities are extending their support to the grieving family during this difficult time. They are also calling for enhanced measures to ensure road safety and prevent such accidents from recurring in the future.
