A 59 year old Delhi Police sub-inspector was killed and two policemen were seriously injured when an over speeding truck rammed into their PCR van late Monday night in East Delhi's Mayur Vihar, police said.
The truck was heading to Noida from Delhi.
The accident occurred on the Delhi-Noida border around 1.00 am when sub-inspector Subedar Khan along with assistant sub-inspector Girdhari Lal, 50, and constable Aqeel Muhammed, 46, were manning the check post, police said.
The trio were sitting inside a Police Control Room (PCR) van when the over speeding truck, carrying a container, hit the barricade and rammed into their gypsy vehicle. Subedar Khan died while Girdhari Lal and Aqeel Khan were seriously injured.
"The impact was such that the truck dragged the van for a few metres before it climbed a guard rail on the roadside and finally came to a stop" a police officer said.
The truck driver managed to escape and is untraced.
