A 23-year old youth had to pay the price with his life for talking on mobile phone while riding on his motorcycle.
The accident occurred today afternoon near Goverdhan Vilas Police station when 23-year-old Harish Meena lost control over his motorbike and crashed with road divider. He died on the spot. Harish was reportedly talking on cell phone while driving when the accident happened.
According to police sources, Harish, hailing from Kherwada, was working as a helper in one of the city malls. He used to live in a rented house near Panchwati.
Every weekend, he used to go to Kherwada to meet his family. Today, while returning back to Udaipur, Harish met with an accident on the Goverdhan Vilas highway.
This is second such incident of a cell-phone related death in the city in recent times. A similar case was reported a few months back when a girl was hit by a train while she was walking on railway track and talking on mobile phone.
UT view: Can any call be more urgent and important than one’s life? If the call has to be picked, please stop by and pick the call. Sometimes, unfortunately, life doesn’t give a second chance!
