A juvenile court judge from Delhi met with an accident on the Yamuna Expressway on Thursday night while he was on his way to Agra along with his family, police said.
Judge C Ramaswamy lost his wife Kavita (35) and his 18-month-old son in the accident. The judge himself and his eight-year-old daughter sustained severe injuries, police said.
According to police, the accident was reported near Tentigaon along the Yamuna Expressway around 8.30 pm.
“They were driving at a high speed and were behind a truck when the accident took place. The truck applied brakes suddenly, but the judge couldn’t react in time. Their Ford Endeavour rammed headlong into the truck. They were rushed to Kailash Hospital in Greater Noida, where his wife and son were declared brought dead,” a police officer said.
An official at Kailash Hospital said Ramaswamy and his daughter had been admitted around 10 pm and were in ICU. “Ramaswamy is stable. But his daughter has sustained a head injury,” the official said.
