Another incident of road rage involving a youngster in the city of Ahmedabad has added to the list of such cases, frequently taking place throughout the country. Jignesh Patel (name changed), an eighteen-year old, 2nd year student severely hit a loading auto with his speeding BMW X1 in the accident. The auto driver sustained several minor injuries, however, no complaint has been filed against the car driver in the police station as both the parties settled the matter with a compromise.
The accident took place close to the HL College of Commerce six roads when Jignesh, a resident of the Jivraj Park area of Ahmedabad was returning from HL College after finishing his presentation. While crossing the road near the police chowki, he failed to notice a loading auto approaching from St. Xavier's College side. Eventually, his speeding car collided into the front part of the auto, throwing the auto driver out of his vehicle. The collision was so impactful that the auto traversed a distance of 40 feet before coming to a halt at the fence of the college cricket ground.
In the accident, the car was also badly damaged as it rammed into a road divider after hitting the auto. Police took no time in reaching the spot and spotted the auto driver lying injured on the road. Investigations led to the identification of the auto driver as Vinod Gupta, who hails from Chandlodia of Gandhi Nagar district. In the meantime, the boy's parents and Vinod's employer reached at the spot. Vinod was hospitalised for treatment of minor injuries by his employer.
Jignesh was taken into custody and the Navrangpura police was informed about the incident. Navrangpura PSI VM Jhala said, “ Presently, it seems both parties have reached a compromise” and he also took assurance from the boy's parents that he would never drive carelessly thereafter.
