The man, Stephen, a air-conditioner mechanic of CIT Colony was travelling in a SUV and was flung out of the vehicle and he fell off the flyover on to the road opposite the SAMCO hotel and at C P Ramaswamy Road.
Onlookers said that the SUV must have travelled at high speed and swung to the right end of the curve in the flyover. Luckily, the SUV did not topple over at this busy lunchhour time. But the man slipped off and fell to the road.
Traffic Police Unit at Adyar are investigating the case.
Later, news came in that the man had borrowed the old SUV from a friend who had bought it at a defense service unit auction.
