Hubballi: On Sunday night, a speeding Maruti EECO car hit four people waiting to cross the road on a road divider in Dandeli. One woman died on the spot as a result of the accident, while three others were injured.
Bindu Gudi, 24, a native of Gadag who had been living in Dandeli with her parents for the last few years, has been identified as the deceased.
According to Dandeli PSI Kiran Patil, the accident occurred on JN Road, exactly opposite the KSRTC bus stand. He stated that the driver, who had parked the car just a few meters away from the accident site, suddenly pressed the accelerator, causing the vehicle to collide with the divider and fling one of the pedestrians violently onto the road. An NWKRTC bus that was just behind the car ran down the woman who had fallen onto the road, he said.
Bindu and her family arrived at the bus station on Sunday night to see off her sister and brother-in-law, who were leaving for Bengaluru. Dandeli police have filed a case in this regard.
