Mangaluru, March 1, 2016: A speeding sand laden lorry overturned near Kavoor on February 29, Monday night. The driver who escaped unhurt has fled the scene soon after the mishap.
The lorry with Bengaluru registration, was reportedly heading towards Bengaluru. Sources said the vehicle was driven so recklessly that it was nothing but sheer luck that it escaped contact with live electric wires.
Meanwhile, all the sand that had scattered on the road was cleared by the owner of the vehicle, even before any media personnel arrived at the spot. Even two cranes from Yeyyady arrived soon to lift the vehicle.
It is learnt, the truck was overloaded and was uncovered.
