A 16-year-old minor who was driving his friend's father's car, crashed into three vehicles in SR Nagar in Hyderabad on Saturday, leaving four persons injured.
The boy has been identified as an intermediate student of Sri Chaitanya Junior College.
On Saturday evening around 5pm, the car had come along with a driver, to pick up the owner's son and his friends. The main accused in the case, is reported to have insisted that he be allowed to drive the car.
While he sat behind the steering wheel, his friend and the driver were co-passengers.
"As the car picked up a bit of speed, the automatic transmission system confused the minor and he lost control. He ended up hitting three vehicles and injuring four persons," SR Nagar Inspector Mohammed Waheeduddin told Times of India.
The car rammed into two two-wheelers and a four-wheeler.
One of the victims was also reported to be waiting to pick up his two children studying in the same college.
According to police, the three people present in the car at the time of the accident, will be made liable for the offence, along with the owner of the car.
After the incident, the minor fled from the scene. However, the police contacted his parents who promised to make their son surrender.
A similar incident had happened in October, 2016, when a 16-year-old Intermediate student drove a car along with three of his friends, and rammed into three parked cars and a bike, injuring a man at Amberpet.
The boy was driving the car at a high speed at Somasundar Nagar in DD Colony of Amberpet, and steered it to the right, to dodge hitting another pedestrian on the road.
