The second truck was travelling towards Palwal and was loaded with logs. The driver was speeding and moved to the wrong side before hitting Singh’s truck, which was severely mangled, the officers said.

They added that he was rushed to Sohna government hospital in a private ambulance, but doctors declared him brought dead.

As per police, both the vehicles were removed from the spot using cranes after an hour, which caused a traffic snarl on the road. Investigators said that the deceased’s family members in Uttarakhand were alerted about the accident after which they reached the city.

Subhash Boken, public relations officer of Gurugram Police, said that officials suspected that the truck driver might have fallen asleep while driving, and so moved to the wrong side. “We will trace him soon,” he added.

Following a complaint by Singh’s elder brother, Gurjeet Singh, a first information report (FIR) was registered under sections 279 (rash driving or riding on public way) and 304A (causing death by negligence) of Indian Penal Code at Sadar Sohna police station on Thursday night.
