Despite the fact that traffic police were conducting a special campaign against driving in the wrong direction, a scooterist was slain and his passenger was injured when an excavator traveling in the wrong direction struck them in Dahisar.
Dahisar police reported the chauffeur.
The Dahisar police filed a complaint against the chauffeur Rajesh Yadav. The rider, Rajinder Singh, was 27 years old and worked as a delivery lad for an online grocery delivery application. He commuted frequently with his companion Sumit Mhaislage, a 27-year-old delivery boy.
On the Rawalpindi bridge of the Western Express Highway (WEH), an opposing excavator hit them.
Jitendra, Rajinder’s sibling, received a phone call from Mhaislage around 4.30 a.m. on Friday. Rajinder and Mhaislage were returning home on their motorcycle at 3:45 a.m. when they were struck by an excavator traveling in the opposite direction on the Rawalpindi bridge of the Western Express Highway (WEH).
Both were ejected from the motorcycle. Rajinder sustained severe chest injuries and a fractured limb. Mhaislage sustained minor thoracic injuries as well. Rajinder succumbed to his injuries at the Babasaheb Ambedkar Hospital in Kandivli, which is operated by the local government.
They found out that the building was beginning.
Jitendra arrived at the hospital after receiving a summons from Mhaislage. When they arrived at the scene of the accident, they discovered that construction was underway, but the road had not been closed to traffic, and an excavator was transporting sand in the incorrect direction. Jitendra contacted the police in Dahisar.
Between April 6 and April 13, traffic officers cited 11,134 drivers for driving in the incorrect direction.
