According to media reports, the KSRTC bus, traveling from Somwarpete to Bengaluru, was climbing the ramp of the flyover at Madanayakanahalli when it collided with the median. The impact left the bus dangling from the flyover for a while, with its front portion completely damaged. Police had to use a crane to safely bring the bus back onto the road. The incident caused traffic in the area for some time, which was eventually cleared after all the passengers were evacuated from the bus.

According to news reports, the police immediately reached the scene of the incident and helped the injured passengers, taking them to a nearby hospital.

The cause of the incident is yet unknown. According to media reports, a technical team is inspecting the bus to determine the reason for the accident. The medical report of the KSRTC driver is still awaited to determine whether the driver was under the influence of alcohol.
