Cyrus Mistry Death: Mercedes SUV Had History Of Speeding, Jumping Signals
An inquiry into the incident has shown that the Mercedes SUV that crashed in Palghar, Maharashtra, on Sunday, killing former Tata Sons chairman Cyrus Mistry, had a history of speeding and running red lights.
Investigation into the vehicle’s driving history turned up several traffic violations, including instances of speeding and running red lights. However, it is unknown who was driving at the time of these offences.
When Mr. Mistry and three other passengers were travelling from Udwada in Gujarat to Mumbai, an accident occurred. Top gynaecologist from Mumbai, Dr. Anahita Pandole, was operating the vehicle. Darius Pandole, her spouse, was sitting in the front passenger seat. In the back were Mr. Mistry and Jehangir Pandole, Darius Pandole’s brother.
According to eyewitnesses, the car struck the road divider on a bridge over the Surya river while travelling at a high rate of speed in an attempt to pass another vehicle.
Both Mr. Mistry and Jehnagir Pandole passed away instantly. The 54-year-old had polytrauma, which is when a person receives several injuries to crucial internal organs, according to the results of a primary post-mortem examination. He also had injuries to his brain and heart.
Serious injuries that Dr. Anahita Pandole and Darius Pandole have are being treated. Since Mr. Mistry and Jehangir Pandole were not wearing seat belts, the collision has sparked a discussion about road safety.
Vehicle airbags are classified as Supplemental Restraint Systems (SRS) since they only function when used in conjunction with seat belts. Very few people in India use seatbelts.
