A 20-year-old man was killed and two of his friends sustained injuries in a road accident in Shahdara here on Monday.

Rahul was returning home along with his friends Honey (20) and Mohit (25) in a Wagon-R car around 11 p.m. when an unknown vehicle hit them from behind on a flyover near Shahdara metro station. The car was flung onto the opposite carriageway due to the impact of the accident and hit a mini-truck.

Honey, who was at the wheel, and Mohit were pulled out and taken to hospital. Rahul was travelling on the rear seat and got stuck inside the car which was reduced to a mangled heap. He was eventually pulled out and taken to Guru Tegh Bahadur Hospital where he was declared brought dead. Rahul was a resident of Navin Shahdara.
