The sequence of events started with the Toyota Innova colliding with a Mercedes Benz car approximately 100 meters before the toll booth at the north-bound lane’s Bandra end.

As the Innova approached the toll booth, it collided with several other cars, causing injuries to nine individuals. Tragically, three of the injured victims succumbed to their injuries, adding to the severity of the incident.

Six injured individuals, including the driver of the Innova, are currently receiving medical treatment. Two of the injured victims are reported to be in serious condition, emphasizing the gravity of the collision.
