A car driver was killed after the vehicle jumped a road divider and crashed into a bus on the other side of the Pune-Ahmednagar highway at 11:10 pm on Sunday. At least 25 passengers on board the private bus also suffered injuries.

The police identified the deceased car driver as Vishal Baban Sarawade, a resident of Shikrapur, who was driving his hatchback car towards Pune when he lost control over the wheels and jumped the divider.

The bus was going towards Ahmednagar and its driver got little time to react as the front wheels of the bus ran over the car before swerving to the left and turning on its side, police said. The bus went skidding for some distance before crashing into four vehicles in the parking of the highway eatery and coming to a halt, police added.

The injured bus passengers, including the bus driver, were taken to a hospital for treatment while deceased Sarawade's body was moved to the Sassoon General Hospital for postmortem.

The Shikrapur police have registered a case.
