CHENNAI: A day after Ashwin Sundar and his wife were charred to death in a BMW, two women sleeping in a mini-truck parked--on the roadsides--were injured after a youth driving an Audi car lost control over the vehicle and rammed into it near Central Railway Station here on Sunday morning.
Yellaiammal, 60, and her daughter Vasantha, 38, both platform dwellers, were sleeping in the mini-truck parked on the sides of the Wall Tax Road near the railway station when the Audi car driven by Vignesh, 24, allegedly ran amok and collided with multiple vehicles on the roadside at around 5.30 am.
Both the women sustained injuries and are undergoing treatment at Rajiv Gandhi General Hospital.
"He was returning home when he lost control over the vehicle and hit on an auto rickshaw and then on the mini-truck," said a police officer.
Reportedly, Vignesh, a resident of Kolathur, was returning after dropping off his sister at Balaji Medical College and Hospital at Chromepet for her early morning classes that began at 5 am.
The Elephant Gate Traffic Investigation wing has registered a case and a court remanded Vignesh in judicial custody.
