One woman was killed and six others injured in the accident at Biodiversity flyover.


CCTV footage of the horrific accident in Hyderabad’s Gachibowli area shows a car flying off the newly-opened Biodiversity flyover and slamming into the road beneath the bridge around 1 pm on Saturday. A woman was killed in the accident and six others were injured.

In videos of the incident, pedestrians and cars can be seen calmly traversing the road when the car, a red Volkswagen GTI, comes hurtling off the flyover overhead. In one video, some notice the vehicle in the air and try to run for cover. The shadow of the car can be seen crossing over the road momentarily before it smashes into the ground.

Viewer discretion is advised.

A second video from a different angle shows the car landing with such force that it is immediately ejected into the air. It slams into two parked cars and a tree that comes crashing down. A road traffic sign, seemingly struck by the vehicle on impact as well, drops to the ground. People begin to disperse immediately, but many look back with shock at the accident site and some begin to approach it.

Another video footage from the flyover, the car can be seen travelling at high speeds down the flyover before crashing into the barrier and tumbling over the edge. Police officials said the car was speeding and is said to have lost control on the brand new flyover. The vehicle crushed a woman who was waiting for an auto on the road beneath, killing her on the spot.

Biodiversity junction is an arterial road in the city’s IT sector and lakhs of vehicles use it daily.

The flyover has been temporarily shut down as a result of the accident.

According to police, the driver, identified as Milan, survived the crash due to airbags that were deployed.

The 990-metre long flyover is a one-way and begins at Divya Sree Orion SEZ and ends after the Biodiversity Junction. It is part of the state government's Strategic Road Development Programme (SRDP) and was constructed at a cost of Rs 69.47 crore.

Many have taken to social media to complain about the design of the flyover, which includes a steep ascent, sharp curves and few signs.
