Delhi: SUV With Allegedly Drunk Driver Rams Into Three

New Delhi

In the fourth such case within a fortnight in the national capital, a man who was allegedly drunk at the wheel of an SUV hit three persons this evening in south-east Delhi's Jaitpur area.

The driver of the vehicle was caught by locals who gave him a beating before handing him over to police. He has tested positive for alcohol intoxication in the medical test.

"The incident took place on Jaitpur Pushta Road when the driver of the Mahindra Xylo lost control and rammed his vehicle into a roadside food stall.

"The owner of the food stall, a cyclist and a rickshaw- puller were injured in the mishap," police said.

The injured were rushed to AIIMS for treatment where their condition is said to be stable.

The driver of the vehicle has been booked under various sections of IPC, police said.

Earlier, in another alleged incident of driving under the influence, a man in a Hyundai Verna last night crashed his car into a 'radio taxi' in the Jhandewalan area, police said today.

One Prabhu Kumar (23), who was driving the Hyundai Verna, has been arrested following the incident, which was caught on CCTV cameras installed near the Hanuman temple premises there.

"At around 11:30 P.M. Last night, the driver of the radio taxi – a Toyota Etios – had parked his car near the Jhandewalan footpath to seek directions.

"Suddenly, the speeding Verna came from behind and crashed into the rear of the car. The impact sent the taxi crashing into the railings of Hanuman temple," police said.

The drivers, both of whom sustained minor injuries, were examined for alcohol intoxication and Kumar tested positive.

"Liquor bottles were also found inside his (Kumar's) vehicle," police added.
