How did the accident occur?

JD Majethia, who had confirmed Vaibhavi's death late night on Tuesday, also spoke with the paparazzi at the funeral. He revealed how the young actor tragically died in a car accident. He shared, “She had gone travelling in Himachal Pradesh. She was getting married in December. At a turning curve on the road, the car was positioned in such a way because the roadway was very narrow. It was a single lane. The car was standing still in a corner and they allowed a truck coming from the opposite side to pass through. As the truck went by, it hit the car slightly and the car went into the valley.”

He continued, "It fell into the valley and toppled down. Vaibhavi was not wearing a seatbelt, which is very... one more learning. A seatbelt is very necessary. That was destiny's call that head injuries occurred and it could also be internal injuries or shock. This was one of the most fatal things and she passed. This happened on May 22."
