Indore : The MG Road witnessed freak accidents late on Wednesday night. In the first incident, driver of a SUV lost control of his vehicle and drove it straight into the basement of a commercial building.
This attracted a goodly crowd to the accident site and soon photos were clicked and uploaded to social media sites.
Meanwhile, two more accidents occurred at the same spot presumably in an effort to snap pictures of the accident. Finally police arrived at the scene and used mild force to disperse the crowd.
According to police, the accident occurred around 12: 30 am. A youth residing in a township in the eastern part of the city had come to have pan with his two friends. The youth and his friends were presumably in inebriated state and while returning home the youth lost control of his SUV and drove straight into the basement of Indraprastha Tower.
The car hung precariously and its air bags were released probably saving the trio from getting seriously injured. The driver fled the scene while his two injured friends remained in the car. The two were then rushed to M Hospital from where their families shifted them to Bombay Hospital and said to be out of danger.
Meanwhile, a crowd of over 150 young men gathered at the accident and began snapping pictures of the accident and competition of sorts ensued to upload them to social media sites such as WhatsApp, outube, Facebook, etc. People parked their vehicles haphazardly and utter chaos witnessed in the area.
Meanwhile a tractor trolley hit a car, while a motorcycle rider rammed into a car.
The small police contingent, which had arrived on the scene, lost its patience with the unruly crowd, used mild force to disperse the people.
They then summoned a crane and pulled out the car and took it to the police station. A case has been registered against unknown persons and the police are trying to trace the owner of the vehicle based on its registration number.
