Police said the incident took place around 2am on Sunday and identified the deceased driver as Ashok Bhagora and the injured helper as Satish Kumar, both hailing from Dungarpur in Rajasthan.

Police said the duo were transporting goods from Mumbai to Delhi and the trailer truck moving ahead of them was loaded with cement.
