At least seven people were killed after a speeding car rammed into a pole in Bengaluru’s Kormangala on Tuesday night. Three women were among the seven killed in the incident. While six people died on the spot, the seventh died in the hospital.

The accident took place at around 2.30 am. The accident occurred when an Audi Q3, purportedly out of control due to speed, rammed into a street light pole.

Those killed in the accident included DMK MLA from Hosur Y Prakash’s son Karuna Sagar and daughter-in-law Bindu, the politician confirmed.

“Initial probe revealed that it’s an act of rash/negligent driving with high speed. They were not wearing seat belts therefore airbags didn’t open. We’re conducting post-mortem and verifying vehicle details,” said Dr BR Ravikanthe Gowda, Bengaluru Joint Commissioner (Traffic).
