Overspeeding and loud music while driving possibly led to the fatal road accident in Noida in which a 63-year-old person lost his life when a Audi A4 sedan hit him in Sector 53 on Sunday (May 26). Police has arrested two accused, both aged under 30 years, who were inside the car when the accident took place. They admitted that the driver lost control of the sedan which was driven at a high speed. The incident took place soon after a Porsche Taycan hit-and-run case in Pune where the overspeeding sports car killed two people on May 19.

The accused in the Noida hit-and-run case involving the Audi A4 sedan were arrested by Noida Police on Wednesday. The vehicle, registered in Haryana, has been impounded. The duo was identified as Luv Kumar and Prince Kumar from Delhi. According to police, Luv Kumar was driving the car when the accident happened.
