US car accident: 3 Gujrati women killed as speeding SUV flies 20 feet over bridge, crashes into trees

US car accident: In a horrific, dreadful and spine-chilling incident, three Indian-origin women from Gujarat killed in a US car crash. 

Three Indian Gujarti women identified as Rekhaben Patel, Sangitaben Patel, and Manishaben Patel, tragically lost their lives in a devastating car accident in the United States as their heir SUV veered off the road, crossing all lanes of traffic, and careened over a bridge, soaring at least 20 feet into the air before crashing into trees on the opposite side


The harrowing incident unfolded in Greenville County, South Carolina traveling northbound on I-85. 

Chief Deputy Coroner Mike Ellis from the Greenville County Coroner's Office stated that it was evident the vehicle was traveling above the posted speed limit. He confirmed that no other vehicles were involved in the accident. 


The SUV was found wedged against a tree, shattered into multiple pieces, indicating the force of the impact.

Describing the accident as unprecedented, Chief Deputy Coroner Mike Ellis said, "Very seldom do you see a vehicle that leaves the roadway at such a high rate of speed that it jumps 4-6 lanes of traffic and lands in the trees approximately 20 feet.”

"Right now, it appears the vehicle is on its wheels, but when the vehicle jumped all four lanes of traffic, it probably struck trees at least 20 feet above the ground," Mike Ellis said.

Swiftly responding to the accident, emergency response teams, including the South Carolina Highway Patrol, Gannt Fire and Rescue, and multiple Greenville County EMS units reached the scene. 

Reports indicate that there was one survivor of the accident, who sustained injuries and was hospitalised but however later succumbed to injuries . 

The investigation is underway.
