The deceased have been identified as Roshan Sanjay Surase, Vedant Bhavsar and his mother Priti Bhavsar.
The Parner police said the accident took place at a junction on the highway. A truck driver, going towards Kalyan, swerved to his right when he saw a vehicle coming from the left side of the junction. However, the truck ended up ramming a multi-utility vehicle in which the Bhavsar family was travelling. Three in the car were killed and six others were injured.
Another car, just behind the MUV, was also hit by the truck. However, no one in that car was injured.
The Parner police immediately went to the accident spot and shifted the injured people to the Ahmednagar civil hospital. The police added that the truck driver fled the scene after the accident.
The Bhavsar family was coming from Kandivali (East) and going towards Shirdi to meet relatives.
