Nagpur: In a horrifying mishap, four people, including two children, were killed and four others sustained critical injuries after a car rammed into two motorcycles on Sakkardara Flyover in Nagpur on Friday night. In this accident, four people on the bike were thrown from a height of about 70 to 80 feet and died. Police said that the deceased, all members of the same family died on the spot after the car collided with their bike.

According to reports, an uncontrolled four-wheeler hit two two-wheelers on Sakkardara Flyover around 10:30 pm. The four riders on the bike were thrown off the flyover. They all died on the spot while the four others injured have been admitted to GMCH here. The dead include a man, a woman and two children.

Police sources said that the driver of the car Ganesh Adhaav has been arrested adding that he was going to Buttibori in a friend’s car.

He lost control and collided with three vehicles including the bike.

Police sources further said that the impact was so severe that all the four passengers on the bike were flung from the flyover adding that one man with his two children and mother were on the bike. Upon being informed about the incident Sakkardara police reached the spot and started investigation.
