Two teachers returning from election duty died in a road accident in the early hours of Friday near Umred village, about 40 kilometres from here, police said.
The two were part of a group of four teachers who were travelling by car after poll duty in Hinganghat, an official said.
"Between 3:30-4am, the vehicle crashed into a tree near Mouza-Champa village, killing Nukesh Mendhule (39) on the spot and Pundalik Bahe (55) a little later in hospital," said assistant sub-inspector Pramod Raut.
He identified the injured as Narendra Pipre (45), who was driving the car, and Vijay Baharupi (49).
A case has been registered against the car's driver, he said.
