Preliminary information from Otur police station officials states that in the first event, a triple deadly accident occurred near Anjirachi Bagh in the Dingore area of the Ahmednagar-Kalyan Highway, resulting in the immediate deaths of eight persons.

Five adults, one lady, and two children were unintentionally killed when a pick-up van travelling from Otur in the Pune area towards Kalyan collided with an autorickshaw and a truck. Four members of the same family, including a four-year-old child and a six-year-old girl, perished instantly in the accident in the pick-up van.

Following the collision, there was an extreme traffic bottleneck on the route for a while. The police claim that all of the dead passed away at the scene, and that assistant police inspector Sachin Kandge of the Otur Police Station and his crew arrived there as soon as word of the disaster reached the control room.

At the scene of the tragedy, villagers and police performed rescue and relief operations, providing assistance to the victims and their relatives. The accident victims’ bodies have been sent to Otur for a post-mortem.

He was going to sell vegetables at Tokawade as usual, leaving his family behind.

He was involved in an automobile accident near Pimpalgaon Joga. Regretfully, he said, the accident claimed the lives of his wife and their two kids. In the second incident, which happened close to Chandanapuri hamlet in Sangamner on the Nashik-Pune highway, a cargo truck headed from Pune to Sangamner crashed into a car that was using the service lane.
