Puttur: Old Incense Tree Falls on Running Bike at Bilinele – Rider Injured

Puttur: The state highway between Uppinangady and Subrahmanya via Kadaba runs through a dense green belt. There are hundreds of decades-old trees on either side of this stretch. This stretch, with many turns, curves, uphills and inclines, is known to witness road mishaps every now and then.

On Thursday, there was a mishap of another kind. An old incense tree, locally called doopada mara, at Bilinele fell across the road and over an overhead power-line.

A bike also happened to pass by at that point and Vasant, the rider, was injured. He has been hospitalized in Kadaba.

The traffic to and from Subrahmanya was affected for more than an hour.
