According to the police, the incident took place on Tuesday afternoon and the occupants of the car were three to four young men, two of whom were later grabbed by locals and handed over to the police after they crashed the vehicle into a pillar.

A car, whose occupants were a few youngsters, was driven in a rash and negligent manner for many kilometers on the roads in Patiala on Tuesday, police said.

“We received information that a Haryana registration number car was being driven in a rash and negligent manner. It hit some people who tried to stop it. According to the information we received, the vehicle had caused accidents at a few spots,” a police official told reporters.

The official said the identities of the arrested youths are being verified and investigations are underway to determine whether they were in an inebriated state at the time of the incident.

No casualties or major injuries were reported as the car hit few people, police said.

An eyewitness, Simran, told news agency PTI that he and some others chased the car on their two-wheeler and also filmed the act on his mobile phone.

“The car driver was driving rashly. I also warned many people to rush for cover as the vehicle was hitting anything which came in its way,” he said.

Quoting eyewitness, PTI reported that the car rammed a two-wheeler at a traffic signal and approached a bridge from the wrong side as the driver kept accelerating instead of stopping.

Finally, the car came to a halt when the driver crashed it into a pillar following which an angry mob gathered at the site, grabbed the youths, and handed them over to police. However, one of the young men managed to flee the scene and police have launched searches to nab him.
