Kasaragod: Fr Santosh Menezes, parish priest of the church of St John de Britto in Narampady of Movvar in the district, had a lucky escape with mere injuries when his car rolled over at Lal Bagh Khandige in Paivalike near Uppala on Monday afternoon.
He was on his way from Narampady towards Mangaluru driving his Maruti car. He is said to have lost control over the vehicle at Khandige.
He had taken a detour through the Paivalike diversion since the highway was blocked at Kukkar in Uppala after a lorry broke down.
He has been admitted to a hospital in Mangaluru.
