According to the police, the incident occurred around 10.30pm, when Mohammed Mudassir Mohammed Imran, 36, and his colleague Iftikar Alam Ansari, 25, were travelling in an Omni van and heading towards Vasind for work. When they reached the Airoli flyover bridge near Mulund, a speeding dumper playing ahead of them suddenly pressed brakes, and to avoid collision with the truck, the driver, Vakil Mansabali Khan, 53, took a right turn and hit the road divider.
