BENGALURU:Traffic was thrown out of gear for a while on the busy Hebbal flyover on Saturday morning after a speeding SUV toppled in the middle of the road after crashing into the median.

The incident occurred around 11.30 am when the SUV was coming to the city from Kempegowda International Airport.

After crashing into the median, the driver braked hard but couldn’t stop the vehicle from toppling. The driver suffered a few bruises but all the three passengers escaped unhurt.

Traffic police managed to divert some vehicles through the service road to lessen the traffic pile-up. A section of the flyover was closed for over an hour while the vehicle was towed away by a crane.
