Car crashes into pile of bricks in Gurugram, 5 on way back from wedding killed


GURUGRAM: Five employees of a private hospital in Sector 84 died after the car they were travelling in crashed into a pile of bricks along Sardhana road around 1am on Friday.
Police said the car — a Swift Dzire — was hurtling down the empty road at 80-90kmph when the driver tried to negotiate a pothole and lost control. There were six men in the car, five of whom had died by the time a police team reached the spot from the Sector 93 outpost. The sixth one, who suffered grievous injuries, is undergoing treatment at a hospital.
All six, the police said, worked in Genesis Hospital and were returning from a wedding at Sardhana village in Gurugram. As traffic was thin on the road, the car was speeding.
The five who died were identified as Neyaz Khan (45), who was from Ghazipur in UP, Jagdir (38) from Jind in Haryana, Prince (22) from Bihar, Sagar (24) from Gurugram and Jibacss (19) from Nepal. Hardik Tiwari (21), who is from Ayodhya in UP, is undergoing treatment.
Police said people living in buildings along the road were jolted out of their sleep when the Dzire crashed into the pile of bricks with a deafening sound. Sagar was behind the wheel. He was an ambulance driver at the hospital for the past 10 years.
Neyaz Khan, police said, was in charge of housekeeping at the hospital and stayed in a rented accommodation in Manesar.
The eldest of two brothers, Neyaz is survived by his wife and two children — a daughter (16) and a son (8).
“His death is a shock to all of us. He had gone home with me to attend the wedding of our cousin in November. His body is on the way. The last rites will be performed in his village at 2pm on Saturday,” said Naseem Khan, his cousin who arrived from Delhi.
Sagar’s father Virender, who works in a factory, said his son was a good driver. “I don’t know what happened to him. He had 10 years of driving experience and there was never any complaint against him. Before taking charge of an ambulance, he would drive a cab. We can’t trust this government to make good roads,” Virender said.
Jagbir, who worked as an electrician at the hospital, is survived by his wife and daughter (8). “His father passed away last year and he was the sole earning member of his family. We are devastated. We don’t know how to sustain ourselves,” said Ashok, his cousin.
Prince, who hailed from Bihar, was in charge of the store at the hospital. The family of Jibacss, who was the youngest of all the passengers in the car, is yet to arrive from their village in Nepal. He was a health worker.
“Hardik is being treated at the same hospital where he worked. We will record his statement soon,” said Mandeep Kumar, the investigating officer.
