The main reason for the rising road accident in the state is rash and negligent driving, and due to that, there are several accidents reported in the state on a daily basis. Most of the accidents claim the lives of the two-wheeler riders as they are most prone to the fatality in the road accidents. In one such incident, two men from Karnataka died on the sport after losing control over their two-wheelers.
According to the report published in the Times of India, Rahul Mhanalkar, 24, and Bhimani Galebalikar, 23, both residents of Nittur village of Khanapur taluka in Karnataka, died on the spot in an accident at Dayanandnagar in Dharbandora, on Tuesday evening.
According to the Police sources, the accident took place while the duo Mhanalkar and Galebalikar were returning back to their native on a two-wheeler after holidaying in Goa.
Sources said the duo lost control after the two-wheeler was allegedly hit by an oncoming car near the Sanjivani Sugar Factory. The car was moving towards Ponda.
Meanwhile, the Ponda police have detained the driver of the car, Rishi Sahay, and an offense has been registered against him. Police have also seized the car.
The bodies of the deceased have been preserved at the Ponda sub-district hospital’s mortuary and will be shifted to Goa Medical College (GMC) and Hospital at Bambolim for a postmortem examination after their family members arrive in Goa, police said.
In yet another incident that occurred on Sunday, an 18-year-old Raju Rathod, from Gadag-Karnataka, died after his motorcycle dashed against a road divider. Rathod, who was residing at Calangute, was proceeding to Karnataka, police said.
In above both the cases it is the clear cut case of rash and negligent driving and the two-wheeler riders seems to be more responsible for the same. In the second case since it is the self accident, complete blame goes on to the rider.
