The other three casualties are Shubham Tiwary (26) and Ragini Pandey (28), Abhishek Gaurav (28). The seriously injured techies are Aman Preeti and another whose name was not immediately known.

The car landed in a totally mangled state, while the front portion of the bus was smashed. A few passengers in the bus are said to have sustained some injuries.
