Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Two individuals, including a 25-year-old woman, tragically lost their lives in a devastating car accident in Purandar taluka on Saturday morning. Additionally, two others, including the deceased woman’s infant, sustained injuries in the collision. The truck driver responsible for the accident fled the scene, prompting a search by the police.

Trupti, her son, and Darekar were traveling back home to Pune from her parents’ house, with Lekawale giving them a ride.

In a separate incident, four tourists sustained minor injuries when the SUV they were traveling in overturned on the road from Sinhagad Fort to Donje village on Sunday evening. The Haveli police station reported that the SUV, carrying a total of 12 passengers, experienced a brake failure, causing the driver to lose control and collide with a rock face on the side of the road.

Out of the 12 passengers, four women sustained minor injuries and were promptly taken to a nearby private hospital for medical attention.

These unfortunate accidents serve as a stark reminder of the importance of road safety and the need for drivers to exercise caution at all times. Authorities are working diligently to locate the truck driver involved in the fatal collision, and investigations into both incidents are ongoing.
