In a shocking incident, an electric bus of the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation lost control due to high speed and collided with 7 cars and a two-wheeler leaving 1 dead and several injured. The incident occurred in Uran. Two people riding a two-wheeler on the Khopta Koproli road were hit by the bus. It then hit another 6 – 7 two-wheelers and a tempo as well. The injured were rushed to the hospital.
