Mumbai: A 51-year-old man was mowed down by a rashly-driven tempo, while he was riding along with his employee on the Western Express Highway (WEH) on Saturday. The deceased was identified as Shivkumar Singh, a resident of Kandivali East, who ran a security service firm.

According to the Dahisar police, the mishap occurred at around 11.45pm when Singh along with his employee, who was riding pillion, reached Dahisar checkpoint. Suddenly, a speeding tempo (MH 47 AS 9880) changed its direction towards the left, ramming into the scooter from behind.
