According to local media, the brakes of a tanker failed and it collided into several vehicles. During the accident, which reportedly occurred at 9 pm, oil spilled onto the road making it slippery which caused other vehicles to be added to the pileup.

The accident has led to traffic congestion on the road to Mumbai with jams over 2 km long being reported.

Navle Bridge is becoming a hot spot of accidents from last few days. On Friday, a woman was killed after being hit by a speeding car near the bridge on the outer ring road.
