A 41-year-old autorickshaw driver was killed after a speeding Bullet rider crashed into his vehicle on Sion-Trombay road around 1.45 am on Tuesday. The Bullet rider was left battling for life.
The police said the autorickshaw driver, Anwar Sattar Shaikh, was taking a turn at the junction on Sion-Trombay road near the telecom factory when Ninad Jagdalmal (28) crashed into him with his Bullet. The autorickshaw overturned. Shaikh, a resident of Trombay’s Cheetah Camp, sustained grievous injuries to the head. He was rushed to Shatabadi Hospital in Govandi, where doctors declared him dead on arrival.
Jagdalmal is in a critical condition in BMC-run Sion Hospital.
"Shaikh was going back home from work. Jagdalmal, a resident of Shell Colony in Chembur, too, was returning from work in a Panvel laboratory, where he works as a chemical engineer," said Annasaheb Sonur, senior inspector of Trombay police station.
The police were in the process of registering an offence. Shaikh is survived by his wife and three children.
