On Sangamwadi bridge, the driver realised that the brakes had failed and he subsequently lost control due to the sudden technical snag. Since there were many vehicles both along and ahead of the bus, he tried to manoeuvre the bus in such a way that it did not collide with the other vehicles. While he tried to stop the bus, it collided with a nearby tree, police said.

Since the Shivshahi bus was introduced by the government, there have been regular reports of accidents. According to data provided by the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC), from June 2017 to October 2019, Shiv Shahi buses were involved in 550 accidents across the state.
