Cyrus Mistry, the former chairman of Tata Sons, tragically died on Sunday afternoon in Palghar, Maharashtra, after his automobile collided with a road barrier.
He was 54.
According to reports, the accident happened on the Mumbai–Ahmedabad National Highway’s Surya River Charoti bridge. Mistry was driving his Mercedes from Gujarat back to Mumbai.
According to reports, the automobile struck a divider before the fatal tragedy happened.
He was traveling with three more people in the vehicle. One among them is said to have also died in the accident. The other two, who also received severe injuries, are taken to a nearby hospital for care.
Images demonstrated how badly damaged the car’s front side was. Although the airbags did deploy, they weren’t sufficient to save the lives of the two people who perished in the collision.

Cyrus Mistry: Who was he?
Mistry was dismissed from his role as Tata Sons’ sixth chairman in October 2016. After Ratan Tata announced his retirement in December 2012, he took over as chairman. Later, N Chandrasekaran took over as Tata Sons’ executive chairman.
The Tata group’s decision to oust Cyrus Mistry as executive chairman of the Tata Sons was maintained by the Supreme Court in May, rejecting the SP group’s request for a review of that decision.
