(G.N.S) Dt. 17
In a collision of multiple vehicles on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, six people, including a veterinary doctor and his family, were killed and four others sustained injuries.
A heavy container vehicle coming towards Mumbai on the second lane lost control and rammed into an Innova which was ahead of it. Dr. Vaibhav Zunjare (41), a veterinary doctor with the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) and his family, were travelling in the Innova, which got sandwiched between the container and the road divider. The container further dashed into a Creta car and then toppled after hitting a tempo, as per police department.
“One tyre of the container was found to have burst. It is difficult to say if the burst caused the accident or the tyre burst during the mishap,” an officer from Khopoli police station said.
