Kottayam: A 28-year-old man, who got married one-and-a-half months ago, died after a bus coming from the opposite direction collided with his vehicle on Neelimangalam Bridge here early on Sunday.

The incident took place at around 6 am after Ranjith Sebastian, an autorickshaw driver, lost control of his vehicle due to the gap on the bridge and collided with a bus coming from opposite side, according to reports.

The concrete in some of the slabs laid on the bridge had come off creating gaps, reports said. The bridhe was opened in July 2018.

Ranjith got married to a girl from Alappuzha on September 16 earlier this year.
