Gurgaon: A guard crossing a road on his bicycle died and three of his colleagues were injured after a car crashed into them in Sector 2 on Saturday morning. The driver of the Honda Amaze — a 25-year-old man — has been arrested.
Shailender Kumar, who was from Mainpuri in UP, was on his way home after night shift. He and the three others had just crossed the road on their cycles and were moving one behind the other when the car rammed them from behind. The cycles were dragged for a few minutes before hitting the concrete footpath.
Police said the accident took place around 8.15am near gate number 3 of Ardee City. Passersby rushed in and took the bleeding guards to a nearby hospital. While Kumar was declared dead on arrival, the three others are undergoing treatment for grievous injuries.
Jang Bhadur, the SHO of Sector 53 police station, said Kumar worked with a private firm as a guard and stayed in a rented accommodation. “The driver of the car was apprehended from the spot itself and those injured were taken to the hospital,” he added.
The driver has been identified as Manan Singh (25), a law graduate and resident of Sector 50. He told police he was speeding and failed to apply the brakes in time.
Joginder Singh, who was on his way home in Indra Colony from Kanhai village, was a few metres away when the car crashed into the four men. “I rushed to the spot and found the cycles mangled. One of the cycles was still under the wheels of the car,” said Singh. Kumar, who died in the accident, was a tenant of Singh.
“With the help of other people who had gathered around the accident spot, we took the four to hospital. Shailender was declared dead on arrival,” he added.
