The incident took place when the car, going towards Ahmedabad from Vadodara, veered off the rear side of the truck.

"The car was going towards Ahmedabad from Vadodara when it rammed into the rear side of the truck on the expressway. While eight people died on the spot, two injured persons, who were shifted to a nearby hospital in an ambulance, succumbed later," Inspector of Nadiad Rural police station Kirit Chaudhary told PTI.

Nadiad MLA Pankaj Desai expressed his grief over the accident and said that the accident might have occurred when the truck stopped on the left lane of the expressway due to some technical fault, and the car driver did not get enough time to apply brakes and crashed into it.
