Two youths were killed on the spot in Hunsur when a speeding truck rammed against their bike on Monday evening. The youths have been identified as 21-year-old Keerthi and 20-year-old Chandra.
According to the police and the eyewitnesses, the truck (KA 13 6539) was coming to Hunsur from Mysuru and was over speeding. Keerthi and Chandrashekar were coming in the opposite direction in their bike (KA 45 W U 648) from Bannikuppe.
As the truck reached the petrol bunk on the outskirts of Hunsur, the truck driver lost control and collided with the bike head-on, killing Keerthi and Chandrashekar on the spot. Both the youths hailed from a poor family and were the only breadwinners of the families.
Town police sub-inspector Shanmukha has registered a complaint.
