Caught on camera: 3 children run over by a speeding car in Delhi’s Gulabi Bagh area

A car ran over three children standing on the footpath after it lost control in Delhi’s Gulabi Bagh area. While two children are safe, the condition of one is said to be critical, reported news agency ANI by posting video footage of the same on Twitter.

According to the video, the incident took place at 9 am on Sunday and was recorded on a CCTV camera installed on the road.

The CCTV footage shows the uncontrolled car running over children on the footpath before stopping at a safe distance. In the footage, the local people are also seen thrashing the driver when he gets out of the car.

The 30-year-old driver is said to be a resident of Pratap Nagar. According to Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Sagar Singh Kalsi, he lost control of his vehicle near the school and ran over the children.

According to the DCP, two children aged 10 and four are safe, while the six-year-old is being monitored.

The driver has been arrested by the police.

News agency ANI reported another road accident in Haryana in the early hours of Sunday. At least seven vehicles collided with each other due to fog early today near Aurangabad village of Yamunanagar. The injured people were admitted to the hospital.

“10-15 vehicles may hit, but we can hit 7-8 here. I appeal to people to drive slowly due to fog these days,” a police officer was quoted as saying by ANI.

According to the Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways’ report on Road Accidents 2020, weather conditions affect the condition of the road surface and the visibility of the motorist, thereby increasing the chances of accidents. Adverse weather conditions, such as heavy rain, dense fog and hail, make driving more dangerous as visibility decreases and the road surface becomes slippery.

However, according to the same report, nearly 3/4 of all vehicle accidents in 2020 occurred during sunny/clear weather. Only 18.4% of the total traffic accidents in 2020 were due to bad weather, such as rain, fog and hail/hail.
