Jalna, Maharashtra- In a devastating incident on the Mumbai-Nagpur Expressway, also known as the Samruddhi Expressway, seven people lost their lives and three others were seriously injured in a collision between two vehicles. The accident occurred late Friday night, June 28, 2024, near Kadvanchi village in Maharashtra's Jalna district.

According to police reports, the crash involved a multi-utility vehicle (MUV) traveling from Nagpur to Mumbai and a car moving in the opposite direction. The collision took place around 11 pm, with the impact so severe that it caused the MUV to breach the crash barrier and overturn off the left side of the road.

Six victims were pronounced dead at the scene, while a seventh succumbed to injuries later at a hospital. The three survivors are reported to be in serious condition.

Local villagers and police responded quickly to the accident, working to rescue those trapped in the wreckage. The scene of the crash showed the mangled remains of one of the vehicles strewn across the road, highlighting the force of the impact.

This tragic incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of road safety, especially on high-speed expressways. Authorities are likely to investigate the cause of the accident, which could include factors such as speeding, driver fatigue, or mechanical failure.

The Samruddhi Expressway, a major infrastructure project connecting Mumbai and Nagpur, has been the site of several accidents since its opening. This latest incident may prompt calls for increased safety measures along the route.

As investigations continue, the identities of the victims have not yet been released. Our thoughts are with the families and friends of those affected by this tragic event.
