In a freak accident, two people, including a seven-year-old boy, were injured after a BMW car driven by an interior designer jumped the divider and hit vehicles on the other side of the road on the busy Ballalbagh intersection, Saturday noon.

Following careless and reckless driving, the car jumped the median and rammed two cars and two motorbikes on the other side of the road. The injured are Preethi Manoj (47), who was on a two-wheeler. She is being treated in a hospital intensive care unit and Amay Jayadevan, who was in a car and is out of danger.

A large number of people gathered on the spot and attacked the driver. A case was registered at the Traffic West police station and the driver was taken into custody to check if he was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
