Bengaluru: Four persons of family returning from funeral die in accident


BENGALURU: Four people, including three women, died on Wednesday after their car collided with a BMTC bus at 2.45pm on YamalurDoddanekundi Road, off Old Airport Road here. One woman is battling for

life at a private hospital. Among the victims, Levin Joseph, 24, his mother Nirmala Mercy Joseph, 56, died on the spot, while their relatives Yalasamma, 52, and Reena Britto, 50, died at Jeevika Hospital. Sreeja, another relative travelling with them, is undergoing treatment at Vydehi Hospital. The group was returning from the funeral of Levin’s uncle who had passed away on Tuesday. Levin’s father Joseph, who also attended the funeral

near Ulsoor, had stayed back at his brother’s house while Levin and the others left for home. According to police, prima facie, Levin collided with the BMTC bus while overtaking another car; the bus was on the correct

side of the road. However, further investigation will reveal the exact details of the accident, an officer said. “Levin and Nirmala lost a lot of blood and died immediately. Reena and Yalasamma too couldn’t be saved, given the nature of the injuries they suffered,” police said, pointing at the victims’ car, a black Santro (KA-53-Z-1581) that was completely damaged. 2018 Four of family returning from funeral die in accident off Old Airport Road -
