A 17-year-old girl returning from a birthday party was killed when her car, speeding on the wrong side of the road, rammed into two other vehicles and a road divider in Delhi before flipping over, the police said. Seven people, one of them the occupant of the ill-fated car, were injured in the deadly crash in north Delhi’s Sarai Rohilla area around midnight. The deceased, Priya Shukla, was a student of class 12, and was returning with three of her friends from the birthday party. Two of the friends fled after the mishap, the police said.
Dev, whose birthday had been celebrated, is said to be critically injured and is currently being treated at a hospital. The car was being driven at a high speed on the wrong side by one of the four friends – it is not yet clear who. It overturned after hitting a mini-tempo, a Hyundai i-10 car and a divider. Also among the injured are three occupants of the i-10 – Yakub, Nayeeb and another man whose identity is not yet known. The police are looking for Shukla’s friends who fled from the spot. They are also probing whether they were under the influence of alcohol.
