Mangalore, Aug 10, 2014: The driver of a Swift car heading towards Suratkal from Mangalore might be thanking his stars for his good luck. If not that he would not have survived in a macabre accident between his car and a gas tanker near Kulur on August 9, Saturday.
The car driven by Uday Kumar was caught in a traffic snarl at Kulur on Saturday evening. The car was in between two gas tankers. When the tanker that was behind all of a sudden went out of control and crashed against the car from the rear, the car moved ahead and rammed into the tanker which was ahead and was virtually crushed between the two tankers. Though the car was smashed, Uday Kumar suffered only some minor injuries.
A case has been registered by Suratkal traffic police.
