The tanker which was on way to Karwar from Mangaluru went out of control of the driver while negotiating a curve at around 5.45 am. It has been gathered that the tanker  had stopped at Udyavar petrol bunk to fill diesel and had proceeded little further when the driver  was reminded of his ATM card which he had left in the bunk. He then decided to take a U-turn at Balaipade when the mishap occurred.

Luckily there was no gas leakage. Fire tender vehicles and police personnel are at the spot. The tanker driver has escaped unhurt.

Traffic on the National Highway was  suspended for some time  following the mishap.
