Traffic came to a standstill for more than 45 minutes on the busy Mansingh Road in New Delhi district following a vehicle pile-up in the area on Saturday evening.

According to police, a Chevrolet Cruze that was allegedly coming from the wrong side turned turtle after it hit a divider. A traffic head constable who had been deployed at the area for the 'Beating the Retreat' ceremony was also injured in the accident.

The car then hit two other cars and motorcycles. According to police, the incident took place around 6.30 pm.

"Nakul, the driver of the Chevrolet Cruze, allegedly took the wrong turn on the stretch connecting Khan Market to Taj Mansingh Road. As we suspect, he was speeding and was not able to manoeuvre his car properly and hit head constable Manoj, who was on duty in the area," said a senior police officer on the condition of anonymity, as he was not authorised to speak to the media.

The speeding car first hit the traffic police personnel and then hit two other cars before overturning. Bystanders called the police, who took the injured to the RML Hospital.

The police said Pranay, who was also in the Chevrolet Cruze, was injured in the accident.

"Initial investigations suggest that the two were driving on the wrong side. They were not in an inebriated condition," added the officer. A case of negligence has been registered in the matter.
