A 28-year-old milk supplier, who was driving a mini tempo, died after his vehicle crashed into a speeding a BMW car at a junction in Vile Parle (east) on Sunday. The car driver, a resident of Juhu, was arrested for allegedly causing death due to negligence and granted bail later in the day.

The Vile Parle police said the accident took place at 4.45am at Parleshwar junction on Hanuman Road. Rajiv Shah, 47, was driving his BMW car to go to Nariman Point with his wife and friends to attend a practice session for a marathon. Tempo driver Sunilkumar Jaiswar, was going from Vile Parle west to east when he crashed into the car.

Since Jaiswar was not wearing a seat belt, he fell off the tempo and got stuck between the car and his vehicle, said the police. He was rushed to Cooper hospital but was declared dead on arrival. Shah was booked for rash and negligent driving causing death under section 279 and 304 A of the Indian Penal Code. He was produced before a magistrate court and remanded in judicial custody, but later he was granted bail on paying Rs10,000 bail amount.
