A 27-year-old student was killed and six persons were injured in three separate accidents reported from different parts of the capital, police said on Monday.
The first accident, police said, was reported from the Delhi Cantonment area and took place when the victim, later identified as Pushkar, was travelling on his motorcycle with a friend on the domestic airport flyover around 3am on Monday.
According to police, Pushkar and his friend Rakesh, 26, were apparently hit by a speeding heavy goods carrier from the rear before he fled the scene and left them lying at the accident spot.
The duo was rushed to an adjacent hospital where doctors declared Pushkar dead while Rakesh's condition is stated to be critical.
"We have registered a case and are looking for the absconding driver behind the accident," the officer added.
Meanwhile, police said, two separate accidents were reported from west Delhi's Mundka on Sunday evening.
In the first accident, four men suffered injuries when an unknown vehicle crashed into their car on Phirni Road around 9pm.
"The victims, later identified as Sajjan Lal Yadav, 35, Aadil, 21, Jishan, 19 and Aamir, 18, were going for a get-together when the errant driver rammed their car from the rear," said an officer.
The impact of the collision was such that Yadav lost control of the vehicle and it swerved towards a road divider before colliding with it and coming to rest.
They were rushed to the Sanjay Gandhi Hospital where they are recuperating. A case of rash and negligent driving has been registered.
"Around 10pm, Deepak, 22 and his friend Nitin, 23, both of whom stay in the Inderpuri area, were going to the neighbourhood market when a speeding truck rammed in-to them from behind," said an officer.
Police then rushed Deepak and Nitin to the Sanjay Gandhi Hospital where they are stated to be in a critical condition.
