Bantwal: A serial road mishap on the new Panemangaluru bridge between Melkar and B C Road on Sunday put the traffic on the highway in total disarray for a few hours.
The driver of a Volkswagen car arriving from Kalladka towards B C Road, in order to avoid hitting a Duster car approaching from the opposite direction, suddenly applied brakes. A Swift car immediately behind him rammed into his car.
Without much distance behind it, a Maruti 800 car hit the Swift car, resulting in all the three cars getting heavily damaged.
The traffic jam that ensued was cleared by the police with much difficulty.
