Three persons including, two women were killed and four others sustained injuries in an accident on the national highway-1 here on Saturday morning.

Deceased were residents of Delhi and were on their way to Chandigarh.The accident took place on the elevated highway near ITI Chowk at around 8.

Deputy superintendent of police Jitender Gahalwat said that driver of Chandigarh-bound car lost control and crossed over the lane to hit another car.

“It seems that the driver spotted a stone or some other object on the road and in an attempt to avoid hitting it, lost control over the car.

After hitting a light post on the NH, a tyre bursted and it rammed into another car travelling from Chandigarh towards Panipat,” he said.

Of the four injured, two persons suffered head injuries and were stated to be critical.
