Ahmedabad: The death toll in the Ahmedabad Bavla-Bagodara highway accident has increased to 12 as two more injured individuals tragically passed away while receiving treatment at Civil Hospital.
The fatal accident took place after a Tata Ace SCV, commonly known as Chota Hathi, was returning from Chotila temple, rammed into the backside of the immobilised truck. Among the victims were five women, three children, and two adults while over seven people had also sustained injuries in the horrifying incident.
The Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also expressed condolences over the tragic loss of lives and announced compensation for the affected families. The compensation includes Rs 2 lakh for the families of each of the deceased and Rs 50,000 for those injured.

The highway remained closed for several hours as investigators examined the scene to determine the cause of the accident. Preliminary reports suggest that the stationary truck was not adequately marked, leading to the collision.
