The white colour Lamborghini car that was involved in an accident on Saturday on Noida Expressway, which resulted in the death of a 28-year-old man, did not stop after the accident and zoomed towards Delhi, police said on Monday.
“We are yet to identify the Lamborghini involved in the accident. We are trying to trace the supercar through CCTVs and are also running the vehicle database search,” said Expressway police station in charge, Vedpal Singh Pundir.
In the 7-second video footage captured by a CCTV camera on the Expressway at Sector 135, the driver of the Swift Dzire car is clearly seen suddenly deviating from his lane to his left and hitting the Lamborghini. To avoid major impact, the Lamborghini too swerved to its left hitting the Maruti Eeco van, which lost control and flipped a several times before falling into a drain, killing its driver.
There are also apprehensions that the Lamborghini and Swift Dzire were racing against each other on the Expressway, which could have resulted in the fatal accident. The police dub it as hypothetical as the Swift Dzire driver, Monish Khan, who was later arrested from Khurja in Bulandshahr, has admitted of his mistake of abruptly deviating from his lane.
“There could be instances when the Swift Dzire and the Lamborghini overtook each other on the Expressway, but that cannot be clubbed with the crash that resulted on Saturday afternoon. However, we will probe all possible angles that have translated into fatal accident,” said Pundir.
The police said that since the Lamborghini was also involved in the crash, it should have stopped. However, that did not happen.
Noida city SP Arun Kumar Singh said, “The CCTV visuals clearly shows that the Swift Dzire driver was at fault. However, we are also trying to trace the Lamborghini.”
Meanwhile the 28-year-old Asad Ahmed, who was killed in the fatal accident,is survived by his wife and 15-day-old baby girl. He worked at a plant nursery in Greater Noida and was transporting saplings when the accident took place.
