According to the police, the driver of the SUV was drunk and was later arrested. A case has been registered against the driver for drinking and driving. No casualties have been reported in this accident so far. A few weeks back, a 17-year Bengaluru old boy took an SUV from his neighbour for a joyride after which he ended up crashing the vehicle resulting in a death. The boy also took along one of his friends and even after hitting two girls, he kept driving the car after which he hit a two-wheeler and a car. The youth was finally stopped after a few people chased and blocked him.
