The incident took place in the afternoon on Umred Road under Hudkeshwar police station limits, said an official.
"Suresh Chaudhary (37), his wife Sheetal (32), son Shashwat (6) and daughter Saumya (3) were on a motorcycle and had taken a turn for Outer Ring Road at Vihirgaon under-bridge when a speeding 10-wheeler truck knocked them down," he said.
Suresh and Sheetal fell off the two-wheeler and came under the wheels of the truck, while Shashwat and Saumya escaped with minor injuries, he informed.
"The couple, of Mohadi village in Kuhi tehsil here, was declared dead on arrival. The truck driver fled the spot and efforts are on to nab him," he said.
