Bantwal: A car plying from Vittal to Puttur went out of its driver’s control and crashed into an electric pole at Kallakatta of Meginapete on Friday. It then rolled into a gorge by the side of the road.
Naveed (20) of Okkettur and Ashraf (24) of Meginapete were injured and were admitted to a hospital in Vittal.
The overhead high-votage lines snapped and were posing danger to the public. The MESCOM staff arrived and cleared by lines after switching the supply off.
