A BMTC bus narrowly avoided a huge disaster when a speeding car crashed into it at Chandra Layout bus stand on Bengaluru’s Nagarabhavi main road on Monday, December 4. The car, upon impact with the rear of the bus, burst into flames.
The BMTC bus, driven by Gourish B and en route from Yeshwanthpura to Nayandahalli, was parked at a bus stop waiting for passengers to get down and board when the car collided into it. Passengers reacted swiftly by evacuating the bus and managed to escape unscathed. However, according to a News 18 report, three people suffered minor injuries.
Immediately after all the passengers got down, driver Gourish drove the bus away from the burning car. With the help of the fire extinguisher in the bus, he doused the flames that had reached the rear end of the bus causing partial damage to the vehicle.
The car, however, had already been completely engulfed by the flames. Emergency services, including a fire tender, arrived to extinguish the fire.
