Four, on their way to Delhi, die in Yamuna Expressway accident | Agra News – Times of India


AGRA: Four people, including a six-year-old girl, were killed and two were critically injured when a car in which they were travelling went out of control, crashed into a road divider, fell on the opposite carriageway and rammed into a roadways bus on Sunday afternoon. The accident took place near milestone 99 on Yamuna Expressway in Mathura. The car was heading towards Agra from Noida
The deceased were identified as Durgesh (30), his six-year-old daughter Anshika, Ashutosh (28) and Anoop Kumar. Durgesh’s wife, Tanu, and their younger daughter, Pari, are admitted in hospital for treatment. Their condition is stated to be critical.
Durgesh along with his wife and daughters, his business partner, Anoop, and the latter’s cousin, Ashutosh, were going to Farukkhabad to celebrate Holi at their village.
Durgesh and Anoop, both Delhi-based businessmen, were friends, while Ashutosh was an engineer, living in the city for the past five years.
A shell-shocked Ratnesh Kumar, Ashutosh’s elder brother, said he was looking forward to celebrating Holi with his brothers, “but now, I will have to perform the last rites of my brother”.
Talking with TOI, SP (rural) Shirish Chandra said the accident took place around 1:30 pm. It seems the driver of the Santro car dozed off at the wheel and lost control of the vehicle, he added.
The vehicle crashed into the divider and rammed into a roadways bus heading towards Noida. The car was badly damaged. All bodies have been sent for post-mortem. Their family members have been informed by police.
A similar accident took place last month on February 24, when seven people were killed after an oil tanker rammed their car after hitting a road divider near milestone 68 on Yamuna Expressway in Mathura.
