BENGALURU:Ten children escaped miraculously after a speeding SUV collided with a school van in Kallahalli village near Anekal on Monday. The school van was heading towards Sarjapura Road and the SUV came from the opposite direction and crashed into the bus. The SUV driver escaped with minor injuries and the kids were administered first aid.

A senior police officer from Anekal police station said that the incident occurred around 7.30 am when the driver of the school bus had picked up 10 students from nearby localities and was heading towards Sadguru Sainath International School located in Kudlu near Electronics City. The SUV, a Tata Sumo, was being driven in a reckless manner and on the wrong side of the road. The driver ran away from the scene when the residents rushed to help the panicked kids who were taken to a nearby hospital. After getting first aid, they were sent to the school in another vehicle. The residents also noticed the SUV driver had injuries on his face and in fear of being thrashed by the mob, had fled the spot. A case has been filed and both vehicles were seized as part of the investigations.
