An official on Friday said four persons were injured after one wheel of an SUV, driven by a drunk 21-year-old Pune youth, came off following an accident and hit an auto in Pune, reported news agency PTI.


According to the official, the incident took place at Jagtap Dairy Chowk in the Pimpri Chinchwad area.



Police said the injuries of the victims are non-life threatening and they are being treated in a hospital, reported PTI.


"It is a drunk-driving case and a case has been registered against the driver," the official told PTI.

Citing preliminary information, the official said that the Pune youth at the wheel lost control of the vehicle which hit a barricade.

"A wheel came off the SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) due to the impact and hit an autorickshaw. Four persons travelling in the auto were injured," ishal Hire, assistant commissioner of police from Pimpri Chinchwad, told PTI.

He further said that the man has been booked under the Indian Penal Code and Motor Vehicles Act.

About a month ago, two techies were killed after a Porsche driven by a 17-year-old minor, who the police claim was drunk, rammed the vehicle into a two-wheeler in Pune's Kalyani Nagar area.
