Two people were killed after their speeding bike jumped a divider and rammed into a four-wheeler coming from the opposite direction on J J flyover in south Mumbai, police said today.
“The bike was speeding towards CST on the flyover when it lost control and hit the divider at about 10.45 pm yesterday. And then it jumped and hit a Honda city car,” said Dinesh Ahir, Senior Inspector at Pydhonie police station.
The deceased were identified as Siddhesh Kadam (23) and Nitin Patare (25), residents of Dadar and Kalva areas respectively.
According to police, Kadam and Patare left home last night saying they would be visiting the Babulnath temple on the occasion of Mahashivratri. The route for the temple was different and police was not clear as to why they took J J flyover.
The bleeding duo was rushed to nearby J J Hospital but were declared dead before admission, police said.
