Mumbai: 14-yr-old rams SUV into senior citizen, zooms off

Mumbai, Sep 14 (SocialNews.XYZ) In a shocker, a 14-year-old boy took his parents' SUV for a joyride but ended up hitting a senior citizen and an auto-rickshaw before panicking and speeding off from the spot in Chandivali area of Powai.

An undated CCTV grab of the incident, posted by the Chandivali Citizens Welfare Association and tagging the Mumbai Police, has gone viral and shows the horrifying sequence of events.


The SUV is seen slowly driven by the boy out of the gate of a building in Nahar Amrit Shakti Road and then turning left without slowing down even as other vehicles were speeding from the same direction.

The senior citizen, apparently on a morning constitutional, walked past a stationary auto
rickshaw and the SUV came out on the road narrowly missing hitting a white car and a scooter.

Taking a sharp left, the SUV bangs into the auto rickshaw and then knocks down the elderly gent, swerves right again and then speeds off, even as other pedestrians rush there.

The CCWA said that the senior citizen, apparently seriously injured, was treated in a nearby hospital and then advised complete bed rest for three months.

The police later swung into action against the boy’s family, and fined the parents Rs 5,000, and warned against such incidents in future.

"This is a major safety concern for pedestrians when parents hand over their cars to kids," said CCWA.
