Mangaluru: A man had a miraculous escape after his bike collided with a car and a truck in Mangaluru, Karnataka.

The incident happened in Kemmayi in Dakshina Kannada district. A man riding a two-wheeler hit an oncoming car that was trying to overtake a truck. As a result the man was thrown into the air and his bike came under the wheels of the truck. The man fell on the ground after the truck had passed.

The car driver was trying to overtake the truck, when it rammed a bike coming from the opposite side. His bike has been completely damaged and the rider Ismail has suffered injuries to his legs.

The car did not have any major damage. The driver too was safe without any injuries. But the bike rider is paying for the mistake committed by the car driver.

Ismail is currently being treated at the Puttur government hospital.

In a similar incident in August, a private bus rammed a car and toppled, severely injuring 16 people on the spot in Mangaluru.

The driver of the private bus had lost control of the vehicle as one of its tyres got deflated and hit the median before falling over the car.

But in the earlier incident, the car driver was overtaking the truck that led to the accident.

On May 28, in a similar incident in Derebail in Mangaluru, a 16-year-old girl walking on the side of a road was knocked by a car. The CCTV footage confirmed reckless driving by the car driver, Sharmila.
