The driver was under treatment, and has now succumbed to his injuries in the hospital during treatment, Delhi police said.
According to the FIR registered at the Keshav Puram police station, such was the impact of the collision that the scooter rider was thrown off the seat of his two-wheeler and landed on the vehicle's roof, while the pillion rider died on the spot.
