After this, more than 45 vehicles running forward and backward collided with each other. This incident is being told around 8.30 and 9.00 pm. The oil that came out of the car after the accident also increased the difficulties of the vehicles coming behind. Due to this many vehicles slipped and collided with the nearby vehicles.
Following the accident, Pune’s BJP MLA Siddharth Shirole urged people on Twitter not to share any unverified news of the accident. He tweeted, “Unfortunate accident at Nawale Bridge on Pune-Bengaluru Highway. Fire Brigade and PMRDA rescue teams are at the spot and taking care of the injured. I request citizens not to share unverified forwards And also avoid going on the spot and interfering with trained professionals.
Navale Bridge located in Pune is becoming a hot spot of accidents for the last few days. Many people have lost their lives. For this reason, it was proposed to connect the bridge with the Vadgaon Bridge so that such accidents do not happen again. The proposal was given to the Pune Municipal Corporation by the National Highways Authority of India.
