NASHIK: Three people, including a four year-old-girl, of a family died when the multi-utility vehicle (MUV) in which they were travelling fell from a bridge on the Nandgaon-Manmad Road in the wee hours of Tuesday.
The injured people, including four women and three men, have been rushed to a government hospital in Malegaon.
The deceased people were identified as Yakub Mansuri (50), Afroz Mansuri (25) and Sifa Mansuri (4).
The Nandgaon police said that the family of 10 was travelling from Nandgaon to Malegaon after attending a wedding function. The person driving the car apparently dozed off when they were crossing a bridge over a river close to the Nagya Sakya dam after which the MUV ran over the railing and fell 25 feet down into the dry river.
The police said that as soon as they received information, they rushed to the incident spot and with the help of the local citizens shifted the injured people to a government hospital in Nandgaon and then to Malegaon by ambulances.
An officer of the Nandgaon police station said the railing of the bridge is very short owing to which the MUV ran over it and fell down.
