A similar accident took place on June 7 in Telangana’s Sangareddy district when a speeding Bolero pickup truck rammed into two women, including a sanitation worker, killing them on the spot. The accident occured while the driver was trying to make a right turn.
According to a report in News Minute, the visuals of CCTV camera show that the Bolero speeds into the frame, and rams into the two women who were on the side of the road, causing them to be thrown off due to the impact. The pickup van does not stop after hitting them, but comes to a halt a little distance ahead after crashing into a shop.
