Nerul: Two peo­ple were killed when a tempo rammed into a tanker on the Sion-Pan­vel high­way at Nerul, in the wee hours of Fri­day. The tanker over­turned lead­ing to a leak­age of its chem­i­cal con­tents. The road was then closed for over three hours. The accident took place around 3.30am on the fly­over near Uran Phata when the tanker was head­ing to­wards Pan­vel. Ac­cord­ing to se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor Sangeeta Alphonso, “Since the vis­i­bil­ity was very poor owing to fog, the tanker driver was driv­ing slowly. How­ever, a tempo driver, who seems to have been speed­ing, did not no­tice the tanker and rammed into it from be­hind.” The cleaner of the tempo, Yo­gesh Doiphode, 24, from Pune, was killed on the spot. The driver, Babasa­heb Bhag­wan Da­rade was taken to NMMC hos­pi­tal in Vashi, but he suc­cumbed to his in­juries.
