Two killed in car-bus collision in Gurugram
NEW DELHI: Two people travelling in a taxi were killed on Saturday when it rammed into a stationary National Security Guard (NSG) bus on the Delhi-Gurugram Expressway early morning on Saturday.
The Maruti Suzuki Ritz car which was bound for Delhi, hit the mini bus that had broken down near the IFFCO Chowk on National Highway 48.
"Three people were in the taxi, out of them two died," a police officer said.
The NSG commando team was travelling from Manesar to Delhi to take part in the Republic Day ceremony.
"The speeding car rammed into the stationary bus from behind. It was a fierce accident. The driver died instantly due to the impact," said an eyewitness.
The incident happened early morning at around 6 am. After the accident, the injured were rushed to the hospital where two of the three occupants were declared brought dead .
The car which was coming from Jaipur in which three people were travelling turned into mangled remains and the occupants had to be pulled out with great effort. It hit the left side of the stationary NSG bus from behind. It appears that the driver of the taxi could not speculate if the bus was moving or stationary and could not avert the accident in time.
"Due to the accident, there was traffic congestion on Signature tower. Our officers rushed to the spot and the traffic was facilitated," said a Gurugram Traffic Official.
The police have registered a case and are investigating.
