Upset with his aunt reprimanding him, a class 9 boy drove a car in anger and rammed three cars and a two-wheeler on Monday morning in Vasundhara’s Sector 3 in Ghaziabad. Two persons, including a woman, sustained injuries in the accident.
After the incident, the boy sped away from the spot and parked the vehicle — Honda Civic sedan — at his aunt’s residence in Sector 5, Vasundhara.
According to police, the incident took place around 8am on Monday. The boy rammed three stationary cars parked in Sector 3 and hit a two-wheeler passing by, before fleeing the spot.

During the accident, the number plate of the Honda Civic fell off the car and it was handed over to the police.
Police said the boy was reprimanded by his aunt for not focusing on his studies.
On Monday morning, the minor took out his uncle’s Honda Civic sedan, lost control of the vehicle and rammed the stationary cars in Sector 3.
He panicked and tried to speed away and, in the process, hit a two-wheeler passing by. The two riders received minor injuries. They were taken to hospital for treatment, police said.
