If one accident took place at Udyavar, another was reported from Katapady. In the first case, one  of the buses  hit a Maruti car near the Udyavar Katapady forest gate after plunging into a road  that was closed for traffic owing to repair works. Luckily the family of one Nagaraj which was in the car escaped unhurt. However, the driver of the bus upon realising that he will  be at receiving end, fled the place soon after the mishap. 

In the second case, a speeding bus  which was trying to overtake a lorry resulted in the bus hitting against a bike as well as the lorry. The  bike rider Satish  is only thanking his stars –for he escaped with minor injuries.

Kaup police who have registered a case have seized both the buses.
