Car over­turns as driver brakes to avoid ac­ci­dent

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - HTPUNJAB&HARYANA -

GU­RU­GRAM:A woman go­ing to pick her chil­dren up from school sus­tained mi­nor in­juries when her car over­turned and hit the side pave­ment as she ap­plied brakes to avoid crash­ing into an au­torichshaw that had sud­denly changed lanes. The ac­ci­dent took place in­side the Rajiv Chowk un­der­pass, near the mini sec­re­tariat. The au­torick­shaw driver fled, po­lice said.

The woman was iden­ti­fied as Ritu Sood and was driv­ing to­wards Sub­hash Chowk when the ac­ci­dent hap­pened. The im­pact was largely re­duced by the air bags in the car.

“To avoid a col­li­sion, the driver ap­plied brakes, which made the ve­hi­cle flip over. Passersby came to her res­cue, and pulled her out of the ve­hi­cle. She was rushed to Medanta-the Medic­ity hos­pi­tal for treat­ment,” head con­sta­ble Anil Pan­chal, the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of­fi­cer in the case, said.

“We were in­formed about the mat­ter around 5pm. We recorded the car driver’s state­ment. How­ever, she did not want to file a com­plaint. We filed a daily di­ary re­port at the Sadar po­lice sta­tion in this re­gard,” the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of­fi­cer said.
