Chennai: Two days after the tragic death of car racer Ashwin Sundar and his wife in an road mishap on Santhome High Road, another motorist met with accident on the same spot today.
However, the man escaped with minor injuries. According to police, Karthik (30) from Tiruporur was riding his bike under the influence of alcohol. He bumped on a speed breaker near Iyappan temple in MRC Nagar around 12.30 am and lost his balance. Karthik crashed to the ground and sustained minor injuries. He was admitted to the Royapettah Government Hospital.
Meanwhile, the reason behind the accident of Ashwin Sundar is being probed by the police. His BMW car crashed onto a tree on Saturday, which set it ablaze, charring Ashwin and his wife Nivedhita. The city police are also planning to seek assistance from BMW to find what went wrong on that day.
