Not the first time such incident has happened

This is not the first time such a dramatic accident has been recorded on Mumbai's Charni Road. On June 22, 2023, an 84-year-old pedestrian died after being hit by a Brihanmumbai Electric Supply & Transport (BEST) bus at Gaiwadi Girgaon. The bus, operated by the Olectra group on a wet-lease basis, was en route to Sion bus station from Ballard Pier when the accident occurred. According to BEST, the victim, Aruna Sadashiv Jadye, came in contact with the front-left side corner of the bus at 5:50 PM while crossing the road. She got trapped under the low-floored bus and could only be taken out after lifting the bus using a taxi driver’s jack.

The pictures and videos that have surfaced, if keenly observed, show a lack of lane and parking discipline by both drivers and pedestrians, which appear to be common causes of massive accidents.

It took about an hour to clear the accident site. The road has now been opened for traffic movement.
