Shocking visuals show the moment a Swift Dzire car hits a Lamborghini while changing the lane abruptly, resulting into the death of Maruti Eeco driver – who was closely following the cars inthe adjacent lane.
The incident captured in a CCTV camera occurred on Saturday afternoon on the Noida Expressway in National Capital Region (NCR) in India.
Footage shows the driver of the Dzire car, in the extreme right hand lane, suddenly changing lanes and hits 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, but the driver of the Eeco van, Asad Ahmed (28) from Mandwali in Delhi, lost control over the car which toppled several times before falling into a drain along the expressway.
Station House Officer (SHO) of expressway police station, Vedpal Singh Pundir said: “The Maruti Eeco driver was critically injured in the accident and died before we could take him to a hospital.”
Asad Ahmed working at a nursery in Greater Noida was carrying saplings in the van, when the accident took place.
Police said that all the three cars involved in the accident were going from Greater Noida to Delhi.
Ahmed’s family had registered an FIR against the driver of the Swift Dzire.
However, police said they are also investigating the role of the Lamborghini driver in the accident.
“The Swift Dzire driver fled the spot and was later arrested from Khurja in Bulandshahr.
“We are also investigating the role of the driver of the Lamborghini in the accident and whether they were racing on the Expressway,” said Vedpal Singh Pundir.
