At least eight people sustained injuries after three cars collided with each other in Mumbai’s Andheri area during the wee hours of Wednesday.

According to reports, the cars – Maruthi Dzire, Toyota Innova and Mahindra Xylo – collided on Andheri flyover due to low visibility following heavy rainfall in the area.

The injured persons were subsequently rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. Details about their present condition are awaited. The cars, meanwhile, have been cleared from the highway.

The incessant rain caused waterlogging in several parts of the state capital. Despite that, suburban services on Western, Central and Harbour lines continued running, albeit with delays. Railway tracks at Sion also got completely submerged in water.

Widespread rains were recorded in Mumbai and its suburbs between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. According to IMD, Colaba observatory recorded 171.8mm of rain while Santacruz received 58.6mm from 11.30pm on Tuesday to 5.30am on Wednesday.

IMD has forecast intermittent/heavy rains in the city and suburbs in the next few hours.
