BENGALURU: A woman dentist crashed her speeding new car into a biker while attempting to take a U-turn in Pategarapalya, in Kamakshipalya police station limits on Saturday. The biker, Prabhakar (51), was injured and is in hospital. Caught on CCTV camera, the incident went viral on social media on Monday.

The police said the incident occurred around 10.30am when Prabhakar, who works as a writer in a government department, was on his way to office. When Dr Lakshmi tried to overtake his scooter and rammed him while taking a U-turn, he came under the car wheels.
