A software engineer and his family had a narrow escape as a barricade at a metro construction site fell on their car at Doddanekundi junction on the Outer Ring Road.

A barricade fell on a four-wheeler, carrying family members, and caused damage to the vehicle. However, the occupants of the car, including the driver Santosh Kumar are safe.

The accident happened on Saturday at the Doddanekundi crossroads near Mahadevapura on the Outer Ring Road in Bengaluru, while Santosh Kumar was traveling home with his family.

As per sources, the roadblock fell on the car, while it was driving past Karthik Nagar and moving toward KR Puram, resulting in damage to the automobile.

“In order to examine the mishap, representatives from Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) arrived at the spot,” they added.
This is the third such mishap at the construction site in Bengaluru this month.

Earlier on January 10, an under-construction metro pillar collapsed near Nagavara on the outer ring road in Bengaluru, killing a woman and her toddler son. The woman’s husband and daughter were hospitalized with injuries.

Two days later on January 12, a road collapsed suddenly due to a sinkhole near the metro construction site on Brigade Road, at Trinity Circle to Shivajinagar stretch.
