A 20-year old Zomato delivery agent died in a road accident in Mumbai when an overspeeding Mercedes car hit his scooter. The incident took place in the early hours of Friday. The delivery boy, identified as Satish died on the spot

"An overspeeding car lost control and jumped a divider, hitting my nephew's scooty. He died in a hospital later," deceased food delivery agent's relative said.
