At around 5 PM on Wednesday, a Truck with number KA04 which was coming from Khanapur hit a Bike and the biker was killed on the spot on Congress road near Second Gate.
The deceased has not yet been identified but hails from Ankalagi from Gokak Taluka.
One side of Congress road is blocked for traffic as the White topping work is in progress since a month now. Minor accidents occur each day on the entire stretch but go unnoticed.
This was a fatal accident raising questions on the safety of the commuters.
HTV’s are diverted from the RoB at Gogte circle but traffic coming from Udyambag cannot be stopped.
