A young woman, who was allegedly under the influence of alcohol, rammed her luxury vehicle into a stationary car in south Delhi on Friday night, police said.
"The incident was reported at midnight from RK Puram's Sector 6. The complainant alleged that a speeding Volkswagen Passat, being driven by an allegedly drunken woman, rammed his Alto car parked outside the Mohan Singh Market complex," said a senior Delhi Police officer, wishing to remain anonymous.
Police said the woman driver fled the area after the accident while her male co-passenger and the owner of the car entered into an argument with the owner of the Alto car.
"A young man and his female friend who were going to attend Navratra function at a south Delhi locality were in the Alto car," the senior police officer said.
According to police, the female passenger works in a private firm and suffered minor injuries.
A resident of Mahavir Enclave, she told the police that the accused was speeding.
"She also alleged that the woman driving the Pasaat was drunk and had run away after the accident. The medical examination of the errant driver's male colleague confirmed that he had consumed alcohol. He later told us that he and his female friend were returning from a south Delhi pub when the accident took place," the officer said.
Police said both parties were taken to the R.K Puram Police Station where they reached a compromise. "The complainants were reimbursed for the damages by the male co-passenger,” the officer added.
