According to police, Rakesh tried to avoid the collision by braking and steering in a different direction. However, the second truck, a gallop, hit his vehicle, veered off the road and stopped after ramming a pillar. Station House Officer (SHO) Kherki Dhaula, Inspector Mahender Singh, said the second truck was speeding and caused the collision.

“It is likely that the three other people were commuters who were given a lift by the driver,” he said. The gallop, which approached from the wrong side, had four people on board including the driver and headed towards the highway.

Three people in the gallop were identified as Shobhit Kumar, Rajesh Kumar and Saurabh Kumar. They and the woman were trapped in the mangled cabin of the truck. It is still unclear who controlled the gallop.

A senior police officer said that even after suffering fractures and deep wounds on limbs and head, Rakesh managed to jump out of his truck and raised an alarm. “He ran to the other truck and tried to pull an unconscious woman out. By then, four policemen on two motorcycles also reached there while on patrol and helped Rakesh pull out two of the trapped victims,” he said.

An ambulance reached the spot where the injured victims, including Rakesh, were first rushed to a private hospital in Sector 90 for treatment but doctors declared the unidentified woman dead, investigators said, adding that Rajesh and Saurabh were undergoing treatment at the Sector 90 -Hopital.

They said Rakesh was later referred to PGIMS, Rohtak and Shobhit to Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi as their conditions were critical. Based on Rakesh’s complaint, an FIR was registered against the truck driver under Sections 279, 304A, 337, 338 and 427 of the Indian Penal Code at Kherki Daula police station on Thursday evening.
