Bantwal: How some bike-riders take extreme risk while overtaking other vehicles and, besides landing in hospitals, put other motorists into trouble was observed at Maira in Kepu village in the taluk on Friday.
Manohar (25), a resident of Vittal, riding his bike, tried to overtake an Omni vehicle ahead of him. In the meantime, a bus came from the opposite direction. He could neither speed and go ahead to avoid a collision nor could he slow down down to stay behind the car.
Hence he got almost smashed between the Omni car and the bus and got critically injured. The public rushed him to a hospital in Puttur.
The Vittal police have registered a case.
