Ahmedabad: In the early hours of Thursday, a heart-wrenching tragedy struck on the ISCKON flyover in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. A gathering of onlookers had formed around the site of a collision between a dumper and an SUV when disaster struck once more. An over speeding Jaguar luxury car, hurtling at approximately 160 kilometers/hour, crashed into the unsuspecting crowd and two traffic constables present at the scene.

The horrifying impact left six individuals dead instantly, while the two constables succumbed to their injuries later at a medical facility. In addition to the devastating loss of life, thirteen others suffered varying degrees of injury, adding to the anguish and shock of the incident.

Most of the victims were young students hailing from Bhavnagar and Ahmedabad. It was their routine to venture out and explore the city during the late hours. Tragically, their night of camaraderie and exploration took an unimaginable turn, ending in profound grief and sorrow.
