Two people, including a woman lab technician, were killed in separate incidents where buses knocked down two-wheelers in the city on Saturday and Sunday.

On Sunday morning, a 27-year-old lab technician was killed when a speeding bus knocked down the scooter she was driving and ran over her in front of the Angala Parameshwari Temple on Magadi Road. Yeshaswini, a native of Bhadrawathi in Shimoga district, was staying in a PG accommodation at Padarayanapura on Mysore Road and worked in a private hospital in Rajajinagar.

Police said the accident occurred around 7.15 am when she was going to Binny Mill near Magadi Road to meet a friend. She was knocked down by a private bus bearing a Tamil Nadu registration number. Yeshaswini died on the spot of head injuries. 

Magadi Road traffic police arrested the bus driver.

In the second incident, a 35-year-old traditional healer was killed when the two-wheeler he was riding was knocked down by a speeding BMTC bus, which also rammed into another bike and injured its driver on Channasandra Main Road on Saturday.

The deceased, Siddaiah, a resident of Yantaganahalli, was travelling to his sister’s house in Chikka Tirupati when the BMTC bus hit his two-wheeler. The bus also rammed into a bike driven by Manjunath (35), a resident of Whitefield.

Manjunath suffered serious injuries and was rushed  to a private hospital where he was reported to be in a stable condition. Whitefield traffic police are on the lookout for the bus driver.
