CHENNAI: A 32-year-old man was killed and another man left injured in two different road accidents that were reported in the city. An MTC bus (No. 554) plying from T Nagar to Sunguvarchathiram reached Poonamallee. “At around 6.45 am, the bus crossed Karayanchavadi and was heading towards Sri Perumbudur. When the driver tried to overtake a two-wheeler and swerved to the left, he lost control of the vehicle and rammed two shops, injuring a 20-year-old man” said a police officer.

Police said Ayyappan who worked in an eatery was standing outside the shop at around 6.45 am, when the MTC bus rammed a textile shop first and then into the eatery. “The textile shop was closed, while the eatery had just opened. Luckily, there were no customers at the eatery,” the office added. Passersby who witnessed the accident alerted the police and then rushed to the spot and shifted Ayyappan to Kilpauk Medical College and Hospital for treatment for leg and hip injuries.

In the second accident, S Raj Kumar (26) of Pattinampakkam, a house-keeping staff in a private company, was heading for work on his two-wheeler around 8.30 am on Thursday. When he was on Santhome High Road, a garbage lorry tried to overtake him and knocked him down. “Raj, who fell off the bike, got caught in the rear tyre of the lorry and sustained severe head injures and died on the spot,” said a police officer.
