One killed as truck rams into motorcycle

A man was killed and another injured when a truck rammed into their motorcycle in Vikhroli on Monday.

Sashikant Lalji Yadav, 26, a resident of Manpada, Thane, was killed; Rajesh Kumar Yadav, 25, also a resident of Thane, was admitted to hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the truck, Vijay Rajbhar, 50, surrendered to the police.

“The deceased was riding the vehicle while the injured man was riding pillion. They worked in a furniture store in South Mumbai and lived in Thane. They were returning home from work when the accident took place,” an official from Vikhroli police station said.

The men were taken to Rajawadi Hospital, where Shashikant was declared dead on arrival. Rajesh is undergoing treatment.

The driver surrendered to a police patrol that reached the spot soon after the incident. “Vijay Rajbhar has been taken into custody. His truck has been seized. While an investigation is still underway, he will most likely be booked under Sections 304 (A) (causing death by negligence) and 279 (rash driving or riding on a public way) of the Indian penal code, along with the relevant sections of the Motor Vehicle Act,” he said.
