TRACY, California (Diya TV) – Tragedy in Tracy, California as two Indian American young men lost their lives in a fatal single-car accident. Witnesses say 34-year-old Amrik Singh Wander and 38-year-old Arvind Ram Ramraj crashed into a fire hydrant and then a tree along four lane road. The Tesla they were driving in then burst into flames. Their friends were in a vehicle behind them and saw the entire incident, but could do nothing to help Wander and Ram, who were trapped inside and died on-site. Tracy Police say speed may have been a factor in the crash, but a final determination is yet to be made.

Wander and Ram were best friends. Wander was a candidate for Tracy City Council just last year and a former civil service commissioner in San Joaquin County, who leaves behind a wife and two small children.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to support his family:
