New Delhi, May 10: A 22-year-old man was on Monday killed when a private water tanker veered of its path and landed on the scooter he was riding in south Delhi's Mehruali area.
The incident occurred at around 6.30 AM. The driver of the tanker lost control over it. It broke through the road divider and landed on Deepak, a BPO employee, police said.
"Deepak, who was riding his scooter on the other side of the road, tried to get out of its way but failed. Gas cutters had to be used to bring out the remains of the victim," a police official said.
The tanker was going towards Chirag Delhi from Chhatarpur. The driver fled after the accident.
"The tanker owner's number on the vehicle helped identify the driver who has been booked for causing death by negligence and rash driving. We are trying to track him down," police said.
