In a devastating early morning road accident, a fatal collision unfolded in Chikkaballapura on the outskirts of Bengaluru, resulting in the loss of 12 lives. The incident occurred when a Tata Sumo collided with a stationary tanker on National Highway 44, right in front of the Chikkaballapura traffic police station.
The driver of the Tata Sumo failed to discern the presence of the tanker due to the thick fog that blanketed the area, according to reliable sources. Chikkaballapur Superintendent of Police, D L Nagesh, stated that the initial investigation points to reduced visibility caused by the fog as a primary factor in the tragic accident.
Tragically, none of the occupants in the SUV survived, and it is suspected that they were not from the same family. The heart-wrenching incident transpired at 7:15 am along the Bengaluru-Hyderabad National Highway 44.
