Press Trust of India  |  Thiruvananthapuram 

A 45-year-old woman was killed and two others were injured when an overspeeding bike hit them while they were crossing the accident-prone Kowdiyar-Ambalamukku stretch here, police said.

Jyothilakskhmi (45), a native of nearby Nedungadu, was seriously injured after the bike driven by a youth knocked her down this afternoon.

Later, she succumbed to injuries at a nearby hospital, they said.

Two other women also suffered fracture and injuries, they added.

Two youth who came on the two-wheeler also sustained minor injuries, police said.

Located in the heart of the state capital, Vellayambalam-Kowdiyar-Ambalamukku stretch is an accident-prone area, which used to witness illegal bike races.

In view of increasing rates, authorities had recently installed hi-tech CCTV cameras in the region.
