In the first incident, driver of a speeding Polo car lost control over the wheel and hit the pedestrians on the busy BK Chowk area around 1.30 pm on Tuesday. While some of the pedestrians were hit partially by the car and suffered wounds, a 35-year-old woman came under the wheels of the car.
The woman, identified as Sunita Devi, suffered critical injuries and died on the spot. She was resident of Sanjay Colony of Faridabad. Three others suffered injuries in the accident. The SGM Nagar police reached the spot and arrested the driver, Ashwani Bhutani of Jawahar Colony, Faridabad.
