Two persons were injured when the cab they were travelling in crashed into a municipal corporation dumper truck near the race course in Camp on Wednesday morning.
The accident occurred near botanical garden on Prince Wales drive road when Jayesh Shendge, 33, and his younger brother Vishal, 30, were travelling from Hadapsar to Pune railway station in an Ola share cab (Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire). Jayesh sustained a head injury while Vishal was hurt near his cheek in the mishap. The Ola cab driver sustained injuries to his head with shards of glass pierced into his forehead. The brothers are undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Fatimanagar.
Jayesh and his brother had planned a trip to their hometown Daund for which they were heading to the Pune railway station. The cab they were travelling in ran into the dumper truck injuring both of them along with the driver. Police officials said that a team was sent to the spot and details of the incident are being scrutinised.
Jayesh works at the service centre of Maruti Suzuki showroom in Hadapsar. “The Ola driver was riding rashly. He was not aware of the truck coming from the other side and crashed into it,” said Jayesh.
“The driver was already verbally fighting with a motorist who had come in his vehicle’s way near the Fatimanagar chowk which led him to being distracted, and caused the accident,” Jayesh added. Vishal said that the dumper truck driver was missing and fled the accident spot.
An FIR against the Ola driver is yet to be filed in the case.
