A speeding car ran over labourers working on a roadside, killing four of them and leaving an equal number of them injured on the Safdarjung flyover here in the wee hours on Monday.

While descending from the flyover, the driver of the Honda City car, who was suspected to be under the influence of alcohol, lost control and ran over the labourers, killing two on the spot at around 2 a.m. Two others died at AIIMS while others have been admitted to the hospital, police said.

The driver is absconding.

Police are questioning two of his friends.

One of the labourers working at the site said, “We were busy with the repair job when the speeding car ran over the labourers.”

Another labourer who escaped with minor injuries said two-three of his colleagues were killed while some of them were injured when the car hit them.
