Two youth lost their lives while three others, including two girls, sustained grievous injuries when the car they were travelling in overturned on the Zirakpur flyover in the wee hours of Sunday. The mishap reportedly took place due to speeding and poor visibility owing to dense fog.

The deceased have been identified as Vishal Kohli and Ankit Kalse while those injured are Nisha, Khushi and Manish Joshi, all in their mid-20s and residents of Delhi.

According to the police, the victims were on their way from Delhi to Shimla via Chandigarh when the car driver lost control of the vehicle.

Gurmail Singh, investigating officer (IO), said Ankit Kalse, who was at the wheel, lost control of the vehicle reportedly due to poor visibility on the Zirakpur flyover. The IO said Ankit failed to negotiate a turn and the speeding vehicle hit the median and then a pole on the flyover. On hitting the pole, the vehicle toppled onto the highway.
