Kolkata: A woman fell prey in another incident of reckless driving on Wednesday. Two buses numbered as 201 and 215 plying through Salt Lake to reach Ultadanga engaged in an ugly rivalry in an attempt to overtake each other near BD Block bus stand.
The woman was riding pillion in a bike which came between the two buses. The collision knocked down the woman, when eventually another bus ran over her, killing her on spot.
