Police rushed to the spot after receiving information. Relief and rescue operations were conducted with the help of locals.

The interrogation of the Hyundai driver, who crashed into four standstill vehicles on the Bandra Worli Sea Link (BWSL) on Tuesday night, has revealed he was trying to plug in his mobile phone charger and lost sight of the road ahead, police said.
