BENGALURU: The elevated flyover on the busy Hosur Road was closed for almost an hour on Tuesday after a speeding goods vehicle crashed into a KSRTC bus and toppled bang in the middle of the flyover. However, no one was injured in the accident. Traffic was thrown out of gear around Electronics City.

A senior police officer said that around 3.15 pm a Mitsubishi Canter belonging to a hotel crashed into the bus which was heading towards Anekal. Police said a case of negligence has been filed against the Canter driver.

The Electronics City traffic police were alerted  following which vehicles were barred from using the flyover. The Canter was lifted with the help of a crane and the operation took nearly 45 minutes, causing traffic jam in Bommanahalli, Silk Board junction and Electronics City.
