Popular Marathi playback singer Geetha Mali died in an accident at the Mumbai-Agra Highway today.

The 38-year-old singer was on her way to her home in Nashik from the Mumbai airport, when the car driven by her husband crashed into a tanker parked by the roadside.

She had just returned home this morning after performing in a concert in New York, and was picked up by her husband.

It is believed that the incident took place when a third vehicle overtook the car the couple were travelling in, in a dangerous manner, leading to the crash.

Geetha, who was seated on the front passenger seat, was killed on the spot, while her husband Vijay was rushed to the nearest hospital for treatment. The couple have a 12-year-old son.

Geetha has made several postings on her social media accounts, from inside the car, prior to the fatal accident.

Our deepest condolence to Geetha's family, friends, and fans. You will be missed!
