Two men on a bicycle died after a Canter overturned on them in Ghaziabad’s Indirapuram, early on Friday. The victims, Ram Pravesh and Subhash, were returning from work around 6 am when the accident took place near Chijarsi Gate.
“The two men were returning from Noida and riding right next to the vehicle. It appears the truck took a sharp turn and the container part on the rear dislodged. It fell on the men and they were crushed to death.
A case of rash driving has been registered against the driver who is absconding,” said Deepak Sharma, SHO, Indirapuram.
The victims worked at a printing press in Noida’s Sector 63 and were returning home after a night shift, police said.
The Canter was heading from Rajasthan towards Meerut carrying construction material. Police are investigating if the truck was loaded beyond its capacity.
