In another accident involving a BMW car, two persons were injured at the Kasturba Gandhi Marg on Sunday. According to the police, a married couple who were on their motorcycle collided with a BMW 7-series car.
“The car was coming from Connaught Place and was at the Kasturba Gandhi Marg. A motorcycle, which was coming from the Feroz Shah Road, collided with the car at the crossing,” said a senior police officer.
The victims, Tarun and Anita, were immediately rushed to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital. Tarun was later released after receiving first aid. His wife, who has received serious head and neck injuries, will be kept in hospital for observation.
According to sources, Rupesh, a hired driver, was driving the car when the accident took place. The police officials have taken him for questioning. The owner of the BMW car, Varun Malhotra, said that the driver was driving the car at a permissible speed. They also alleged that the traffic lights at the crossing were not working at the time of the accident. “My driver was driving the car while me and my friend were sitting in the back seat. The bike was coming from the side at a high speed. The lights too were not working, and this confusion led to the accident,” said Malhotra.
The police have registered a case against the driver for rash and negligent driving. They have also impounded the car.
