New Delhi: An Air India air hostess was tragically killed in a pile-up accident on Friday at a south Delhi flyover when her office van slammed the rear end of another vehicle.

The air hostess, Shakambri Zutshi Dhar, was on her way to the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI Airport) to report for her flight bound for Kolkata when the office cab she was travelling in smashed itself against an SUV which had hit a stationary struck at the Rajokri flyover around 4 am in the morning. Immediately as the car crashed, Zutshi was thrown off her seat and directly landed on the bonnet of the car after crashing through the windshield.

Zutshi was immediately admitted to a nearby hospital where she eventually died. The Air India air hostess is survived by her seven-year-old son and her husband who is suffering from blood cancer.

Police conducting investigation on the matter suspect that the truck driver must have initially halted after spotting a traffic booth ahead of the spot, allegedly to negotiate a bribe with one of the traffic officials. The driver of the Innova SUV who rammed into the truck fled the scene after suffering minor injuries.

It was after the collision that Zutshi’s cab rammed into the SUV where the air hostess was killed. The driver has been hospitalised.
