The car was going towards Haridwar on National Highway 58 in Mansoorpur, near Muzaffarnagar.
An early morning walk turned tragic for a 60-year-old woman in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar after she was killed instantly by a speeding car that lost control, jumped a divider and overturned several times before hitting her.
The incident, caught on video, shows the woman walking on one side of the pavement when a Hyundai Verna sedan, zooming on the opposite side, suddenly swerves and comes on her path. The woman, alarmed by the incoming car, is seen briefly trying to shield herself from the car that was hurtling towards her. She then disappears under the weight of the heavy sedan.
The driver fell asleep before losing control and hitting the road divider, the police said. In the 30-second clip, the car made at least three flips in the air before landing on the opposite road where the 60-year-old woman was walking.
The car was going towards Haridwar on National Highway 58 in Mansoorpur, some 17 kilometres from Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar. Three people, present in the car, were injured and taken to a hospital nearby, a senior police officer said.
"A case has been filed and an investigation is underway," said Superintendent of Police Omveer Singh.
