Vadodara: A commuter was mowed down by a private luxury bus near Gotri Police Station late Thursday evening.
Eyewitnesses said that one of the rear wheels of a tour company-operated staff bus ran over the deceased. The man was driving his scooter from Gotri intersection towards Nilamber Circle around 8 p.m. on Thursday and was knocked down in front of a hotel near Gotri Police Station.
It is believed that the bus driver fled the spot after the accident. The police tried to establish the identity of the man and to contact his family members.
A large crowd had gathered at the scene of the accident and caused a traffic jam. The narrow road that leads from Gotri Junction to Nilamber Circle has enormous traffic, including that of heavy vehicles, during rush hour.
