In a major accident in Ghaziabad Tuesday (11 July) morning, at least six people were killed in a collision between a car and a bus on Delhi-Meerut Expressway.

Officials said that the incident took place on the lane going from Lalkuan to Delhi on NH 9 near the Crossing Republic Police Station area.

The accident occurred at around 6 am when a TUV car collided with a school bus which was coming from the wrong direction after getting CNG from Ghazipur in Delhi. The TUV was coming from Meerut’s direction and was on its way to Gurugram.

“Six people died on the spot, and two are critically injured. The accident was the fault of the bus driver, as he was coming from the wrong direction all the way from Delhi. He has been nabbed”, said Additional DCP (traffic) Ramanand Kushwaha.

“The occupants of the car were members of the same family. There was no student on the bus” he added.

A video of the accident was captured on a CCTV camera.

The tragic crash was so severe that the TUV got entirely crushed, trapping the dead bodies in the car. A huge crowd of people was also seen on the spot after the accident. According to the information received, a dead body had to be pulled out of the car by cutting the gate with a cutter.

Meanwhile,  dead bodies have been sent for postmortem.
