Greater Noida: A day af­ter a car on Ya­muna Ex­press­way hit a di­vider, flipped over to the other side and crashed into a mov­ing bus — killing two Amity Univer­sity stu­dents, another per­son died in the hos­pi­tal late on Fri­day.

While two stu­dents — Owais Chaud­hary and Shivani Ya­dav — died on the spot, Sai Sharma suc­cumbed to his in­juries at Yatharth hos­pi­tal on Fri­day. Sharma was sit­ting in the back seat of the Hyundai i20 car with two oth­ers when the ac­ci­dent took place.

The two stu­dents – Aditi Sax­ena from Noida’s Sec­tor 53 and Shau­rya Gupta from Shakarpur in Delhi – who were sit­ting in the front seats, were ad­mit­ted to AIIMS, both with ma­jor neck in­juries.

Ajay Gupta, Shau­rya’s father, told TOI , “We have ad­mit­ted him to AIIMS. The doc­tors are say­ing that he is still crit­i­cal and needs to be in the ICU.” He added that the fam­ily had no idea that Shau­rya had gone for a trip. “His in­ter­nal ex­ams were on and he had left home for col­lege at 7am,” he said.

Milind Kukreja, Aditi’s un­cle, said she is sta­ble but in trauma. “We have moved her to a lo­cal hos­pi­tal near our house in Noida. She is re­cov­er­ing from a ma­jor in­jury in the neck but is out of dan­ger,” said Kukreja.

Amity Univer­sity of­fi­cials said all stu­dents are from dif­fer­ent batches. While Shau­rya and Aditi are pur­su­ing BSc (chem­istry), Sai Sharma was in BSc (foren­sic science). Shivani was in the first year of Bach­e­lor in Fine Arts and Owais Choud­hary stud­ied BTech (com­puter science).

Po­lice said the stu­dents had rented the car on Fri­day af­ter­noon to go for a drive to Agra and the ac­ci­dent oc­curred on their way back. Po­lice have re­ceived no com­plaint in the in­ci­dent so far.
