Wagholi, 9th May 2024: The incident involving the death of a woman on a two-wheeler in a collision with an unidentified heavy vehicle occurred on the Pune Nagar highway at the Awhalwadi Phata in Wagholi. Within a span of 12 days, seven individuals lost their lives in accidents in and around Wagholi.

The woman who passed away in this accident has been identified as Sangeeta Balasaheb Kamble, aged 37 and a resident of Theur. A complaint in this matter has been lodged by Aryan Kamble.

According to police, Kamble was riding a two-wheeler when a heavy vehicle struck her bike from behind, resulting in serious injuries. Despite efforts, she succumbed to her injuries before receiving medical treatment. This incident occurred on Tuesday morning (7th) around seven o’clock. A case has been registered against the unidentified vehicle driver at Lonikand Police Station in connection with this incident.

Additionally, three individuals lost their lives in a collision between an eco-car and a container on the Ashtavinayak highway at Lonikand Theur. Another incident involved a car driver who died after colliding with a truck parked on the Pune Nagar highway. Furthermore, a youth riding a motorcycle lost his life after being hit by a truck on the Ashtavinayak Highway in Lonikand Theur.

Meanwhile, a girl and a woman travelling on a two-wheeler lost their lives in separate collisions with unidentified vehicles on the Pune – Ahmednagar highway. Numerous motorcyclists fall victim to morning accidents, often caused by heavy vehicles exceeding speed limits. Following the collision, these vehicles often flee the scene.

While only the unidentified drivers are held accountable, there’s little effort to track them down. Instead, the focus should be on installing CCTV cameras at traffic signals along the highway. This would not only enable the imposition of fines on traffic rule violators but also facilitate the capture of accidents on CCTV footage, aiding in the identification of vehicles involved.
