The incident took place in Okhla at around 12:15 PM and the victims were identified as Vishnu (25), the truck driver, and Vijender (28), who was on a cycle and hit by the truck, in south-east Delhi's Okhla.
Vishnu was driving a truck loaded with construction material and rammed his vehicle into a container on Okhla flyover while trying to overtake it. He was allegedly fleeing after hitting the cyclist.
The impact of the collision of the truck and container was so severe that gas cutters were used to take the driver out from the mangled heap.
Vishnu, who was trapped inside and taken out after two hours of work by fire brigade and police, was rushed to AIIMS where he was declared brought dead.
Eyewitnesses told police that Vishnu had hit a cyclist minutes before he rammed his truck into the container.
Vijender's body was found near the collision site.
