A 24-year-old man from Gujarat was killed and his two college friends escaped with minor injuries after the car he was driving veered off and crashed into a divider on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway in Maharashtra's Palghar district in the wee hours of Monday, said the police.

The incident took place around 1.10 am at the Waghoba Khind area in Mauje-Thekale village in Palghar, added the police.

The deceased, identified as Jigar Jain, was a resident of Valsad and an architect-engineer, said the police who added that he lost control of the car due to over-speeding.

Jigar took his father's Maruti Alto car for the journey and on March 28 (Monday), around 12.10 am, he called his father and informed him that they were on their way back home and were having dinner at a hotel, said the police.
