Bantwal: Tyre-burst Causes Timber-laden Lorry to Roll over near Mani – 2 Injured

Bantwal: A front tyre of a lorry laden with huge timber logs burst near the entrance to the Peraje Mani Math near Kodaje on the Mani-Mysuru state highway on Tuesday. The timber was being transported from Sullia to Mangaluru.

As a result, the lorry rolled over, with the logs blocking the movement of traffic. Two persons who were injured and were stuck inside the lorry’s cabin were pulled out by the public and were admitted to a private hospital in Puttur.

Eyewitnesses said that an autorickshaw had just passed by the side of the lorry and escaped being crushed by a whisker.
