On Saturday, a fast automobile traveling on the newly-opened Biodiversity overpass lost control and went off the bridge, ɪпjᴜring two cars beneath the flyover in Hyderabad’s Gachibowli neighborhood. The incident resulted in the deɑth of one woman and the ɪпjᴜry of six others.
The Biodiversity Junction is a major thoroughfare in the city’s IT industry, with tens of thousands of cars passing through each day. At 1:19 p.m., the event occurred. Many people turned to social media shortly after the accident to protest about the flyover’s design, which included a high rise and abrupt bend, as well as a lack of signs.
The driver of the red Volkswagen GTI was speeding, according to authorities, and lost control due to the sharp bend on the overpass. The driver, named as Milan, was unharmed in the collision since air bags were activated at the time of contact. Satyaveni, who was with her daughter at the time of the тгɑɡᴇԀʏ, has been identified as the ᴠɪᴄтɪᴍ. Her daughter, on the other hand, was only ѕʟɪɡһтʟʏ һᴜгт.
A Venkateswara Rao, the Madhapur DCP, told TNM, “The automobile had lost control while going at a rapid rate. As a result, it collided with the flyover’s railing and plummeted to the ground. The vehicle ᴄгᴜѕһᴇԀ a lady who was waiting for a bus beneath the flyover.” “A handful of new automobiles parked outside Nisan showroom were also damaged in the crash,” he said.
According to a statement released by the Cyberabad Deputy Commissioner of Police, the vehicle was speeding, driving at 104 kilometers per hour. The statement adds, “On preliminary inquiry, it was discovered that the collision was caused by the OVERSPEEDING vehicle on the overpass at 104 kmph instead of the authorized 40 kmph,” according to the statement.
The automobile crashes into the overpass’s wall at great speed, before falling over and landing on the road below, according to CCTV footage from the flyover.
Those who were һᴜгт were sent to Care Hospital, which is less than a kilometer away from the accident scene. Two of the ɪпjᴜгᴇԀ were sent to another hospital, while four others who had minor ɪпjᴜгɪᴇѕ were treated and released.
The flyover has been temporarily blocked as a result of the accident.
This is the second big accident on the overpass since it was opened by Municipal Minister KT Rama Rao on November 4.
On November 10, a Cognizant software employee who was apparently Ԁгᴜпᴋ ѕʟɑᴍᴍᴇԀ his automobile into two cars before ᴋпᴏᴄᴋɪпɡ Ԁᴏwп two individuals who were snapping photos after halting their bike on the flyover, ᴋɪʟʟɪпɡ two people and ɪпjᴜгɪпɡ four others.
