The out of control car had first hit another car on the Jindal bridge before running over the two sleeping labourers from Bihar, a police officer said.
It had three occupants when it fell from the bridge, killing all on board.
The accident happened after traffic was allowed along one-way on the bridge causing congestion, as work was going on in the other part, the police officer said.
