Sad demise of our hometown's ex MLA of Bantwal, in Mangalore.
Bondala Jagannatha Shetty, this happened yesterday, one of my uncle's close friend, who has travelled with him in this white fortuner, several times.
His house was just 1.5 kms from the place of incident.
This incident happened at a place called Panemangalore , that comes before B.C.Road.
This has happened yesterday night, around 11 pm.
The owner who was the victim, had just dropped the driver to his home and was returning to his home.
When this lorry of Gas cylinder, came and hit him on the drivers side.
He was dead on spot.
I am terribly shocked, as this guy loved his car to the core, inspite of his post, he used to wash his car.
And that person's fate was not good, that this car took his life.
The Airbag's would have saved him, if the impact was on front.
But this lorry is said to have hit him to the crumple zone sidewards.
