Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : ACCIDENT! SUV Collides with Truck on Pune-Nashik Highway, Resulting in 3 Fatalities and 5 Injuries

Pune: Tragedy struck on the Pune-Nashik Highway this morning as a thick blanket of fog enveloped the area, leading to a horrifying accident. Three individuals lost their lives, while five others sustained injuries when their SUV collided with a moving truck. The incident occurred around 5.45 am near Manchar, as the SUV, identified as a Cruiser jeep, was traveling at high speed from Nashik towards Pune’s Bhosari.

The treacherous road conditions, compounded by the early winter fog, proved fatal as the SUV failed to notice the truck ahead. With immense force, the SUV rammed into the truck, causing it to veer off the road and sustain severe damage to its front half. Tragically, three of the eight occupants, identified as Madhukar Ahire (52), Shantaram Ahire (50), and Pankaj Jagtap (36), all residents of Jaikheda in Satara district, lost their lives in the collision.

The remaining five individuals, two of whom are in critical condition, were immediately rushed to the Manchar Sub-District Hospital. Later, two of the injured were transferred to a private hospital for further medical attention. Preliminary assessments suggest that the deceased victims were trapped within the mangled wreckage of the SUV, resulting in their unfortunate demise at the scene. Investigators believe that the dense smog in the area likely impaired the SUV driver’s visibility, leading to the tragic collision. However, a thorough investigation is currently underway to determine the exact cause of the accident.

Promptly responding to the distress call, a team from the Manchar Police swiftly arrived at the scene. They promptly cleared the debris from the SUV, restoring smooth traffic flow by 8 am. The Pune-Nashik Highway, a busy thoroughfare, was temporarily stalled due to the accident but quickly returned to normalcy thanks to the police’s efficient efforts.

This incident serves as a stark reminder of the dangers posed by foggy weather conditions and the importance of exercising caution while driving. Authorities are urging motorists to remain vigilant and adapt their driving habits accordingly to prevent further accidents on the roads.
