In a hit-and-run incident, a biker was hit by a speeding SUV at Dwarka's Lovely Chowk (Sector 5) on Sunday. Eyewitnesses said the accident took place around 12 pm.
The car, after hitting the bike, lost its balance and crossed the footpath, service lane and barged into the triangular patch, located at the corner of the intersection, breaking the boundary wall.
According to police, the biker got injured in the crash whereas the driver of the SUV and others, who were in the car, fled from the spot after the mishap occurred. The biker was immediately taken to the nearby hospital of the sub-city.
"A case has been registered at Dwarka South Police Station and a probe has been initiated in this regard," police said.
According to Ravi Singh, one of the onlookers on the spot, the collision was so strong that the biker was up in the air for few seconds, colliding twice with the SUV. The person who took the injured to the hospital said the victim was in conscious state and talking.
Talking about the incident, people residing nearby this intersection pointed out this particular spot had witnessed many collisions like this in the past as commuters can be often seen violating traffic rules. Vishal Gupta, a resident of Lovely Home Apartments, stressed that cops should get more strict with the prosecution of people jumping the red light in order to avoid such mishaps.
"It is an intersection where vehicles from Ashirvad Chowk and the Rajpuri Market merge. So often, the vehicles here move fast and as a result, commuters jump the red light. There must be a proper mechanism to check the speed and prosecute the violators," Gupta concluded.TAGS: Dwarka news / local news / accident / mishap / Lovely Chowk / Sector 5 / passersby / residents / biker / SUV driver / traffic police / red light jump / incident
