A 44-year-old man from Kharghar and his mi­nor son died in a road ac­ci­dent af­ter the bike they were trav­el­ling on, was hit by an un­known ve­hi­cle at Taloja on Thurs­day.

The ac­ci­dent took place be­fore 7.45am on Pan­vel - Mum­bra high­way.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, Pun­jab Matan­gale and his 13- year- old son Ma­hadev had gone to Taloja for some work in the morn­ing. They were hit by the ve­hi­cle just a few yards away from a ho­tel on the busy road.

“They sus­tained se­vere head in­juries and died on the spot. They were rushed to a nearby hos­pi­tal by some lo­cal res­i­dents, but were de­clared dead on ar­rival,” said a po­lice of­fi­cer from the Taloja po­lice sta­tion.

“Pun­jab’s Aad­haar card showed that he was a res­i­dent of Au­rangabad. How­ever, we later learnt that he stayed at Owe peth at Kharghar with his fam­ily,” he said.

The po­lice later handed over the bod­ies to their fam­ily af­ter the post-mortem at Pan­vel ru­ral hos­pi­tal.

“No one saw the reg­is­tra­tion num­ber of the ve­hi­cle that hit the vic­tims. We have reg­is­tered a case un­der sec­tions 279, 427, 304a of the In­dian Pe­nal Code ( IPC) and sec­tion 184 and 134 of the Mo­tor Ve­hi­cles Act. We hope to solve the case soon,” said an­other po­lice of­fi­cer.

I n an­other ac­ci­dent on Wed­nes­day night, a 26- yearold youth died at Airoli. Shivaji Wakhode, a res­i­dent of Sec­tor 2, was rid­ing his mo­tor­cy­cle when he was hit by an uniden­ti­fied ve­hi­cle.
