One person died and another is in a serious state in a hospital after the two who were on a motorbike were thrown over the Alwarpet flyover railings when the bike hit it as they took a sharp bend here.
The accident took place on Sunday afternoon.
The duo were headed to Mandaveli and the biker WAS taking the TTK Road – C P Ramaswamy Road route.
Police suspect that the biker must have been driving at high speed, grazed the railings and in the impact the two were thrown off and fell to the road below.
