The accident took place at Ramabai Nagar near Eastern Express Highway in the early hours on Tuesday, when the victim Sachin Vishnu Damale (38) rammed his car into a stationary police patrolling van belonging to Pantnagar police station, an official said.

"The Antop Hill residents were returning to Mumbai from Nashik after attending a wedding. The car was being driven in a rash and negligent manner and none of our police officials were injured in the accident," senior police officer Suhas Kamble said.
An offence has been registered against the man killed in the accident under sections 304A (causing death by negligence), 279 (rash driving) and other relevant provisions of the Indian Penal Code and Motor Vehicles Act, he added.
