A man was killed in an accident involving three cars, including a Lamborghini, on Noida Expressway on Saturday afternoon.
According to police, the accident took place around 2pm when a Swift Dzire hit a Lamborghini while changing lane abruptly. The driver of the Lamborghini car swerved to his left trying to evade the Dzire car. In the process, he hit a Maruti Eeco van, which was following him. The van driver lost control over the car which toppled several times before falling into a drain along the expressway.
Vedpal Singh Pundir, station house officer of expressway police station, said, “The Maruti Eeco driver was critically injured in the accident and died before we could take him to a hospital. The victim is identified as 28-year-old Asad Ahmed, a resident of Mandawali in Delhi.”
The entire incident is captured on CCTV camera installed near Sector 135 on the expressway.
The footage shows how the driver of the Dzire car, in the extreme right hand lane, suddenly changed lanes. It hit the Lamborghini, which was closely following it in the adjacent lane. The driver of the Lamborghini turned slightly to its left, hitting the Maruti Eeco van in the next lane.
Even though both the Dzire car and the Lamborghini sped away, the Eeco van toppled over several times and fell into a drain along the Expressway (not visible in the available CCTV footage).
A police officer said, “The Swift Dzire driver fled the spot and was later arrested from Khurja in Bulandshahr.”
The three cars involved in the accident were going from Greater Noida to Delhi.
The victim’s relatives had registered an FIR against the driver of the Swift Dzire only. “However, we are also investigating the role of the driver of the Lamborghini in the accident and whether they were racing on the Expressway,” said Pundir.
Abdul Rauf, the nephew of the victim, said, “My uncle worked at a nursery in Greater Noida and was carrying saplings in the van when the accident took place. He was rushed to a hospital but was declared dead on arrival.”
