Resident of Konwal Galli, Belagavi Kalidas Ramnathkar was travelling to Bengaluru in his Toyota Corola when his car met with an accident near Tavrekere, Tumkur on NH 4.
His wife Shweta(32) and daughter Annada (2 years)died on the spot while his son Chaitanya and Kaildas were injured.
The impact of the accident on the car was too as the cause of the crash was said to be a tyre burst and the car fell down from the NH4 onto the service road.

Tyre burst? Seems hardly possible! Toyota Corolla, to my knowledge, uses tubeless tyres. Tubeless tyres don’t “burst”. That is the reason why tubeless tyres were made in the frist place, to eliminate the risk of a tyre blow-out. Moreover, if a car like that just falls off the highway, won’t crumple that badly. There’s definitely been a collision.
Tubeless tyres burst too. My friends’ ford fiesta’s front right tyre did burst, lucky he was at a lower speed he wasn’t hurt.
Very Sad to hear that Kalidas is an ex Paulite.
I too faced tyre burst in my swift at the speed of 140 plus, it has tubeless tyres bt neither it ran out of track nor met with ny kind of accident.
Very Sad and tragic.. 🙁
Sorry for that. prayers for the departed soul.
