Speeding SUV rams into hotel in Pune’s Sangvi, elderly man killed
In a freak accident, a speeding SUV on Monday rammed into a hotel in Pune’s Sangvi area and mowed down a 60-year-old man, the owner of the facility, police said.
The wife of the deceased Omprakash Pandinwar and two others, including the driver of the vehicle, were injured in the accident that occurred around 1pm, according to police.
A police officer said the SUV was travelling at a high speed on the main road opposite to the hotel.
“We have found CCTV footage of the mishap in which it is clearly seen that the driver lost his control over the vehicle after it hit a speed-braker. The vehicle swerved and rammed into the hotel with very high speed,” he said.
The vehicle hit Pandinwar, who was standing near the cash counter of the hotel, his wife, and another person present in the hotel.
“The driver of the SUV also sustained injuries and he lost his consciousness,” the police officer said.
Police are yet to ascertain the identity of the driver and the owner of the SUV.
