Two men died on the Mumbai-Goa highway Wednesday afternoon when their two-wheeler collided with a state transport bus.
The men were heading towards Mumbai when the accident took place, said the police.
“The bike was at a very high speed and apparently the rider lost control and jumped lanes before colliding with the bus, which was on a different lane,” said a police officer.
While the rider has been identified as Ruchit Bhalerao (22), the pillion rider is yet to be identified, the police said. “The bike belonged to Bhalerao.
He is a resident of Mumbai and they were on their way to Mumbai. We are yet to contact their families,” the officer added.
