Jaipur: In a dramatic incident, a truck struck a car from behind and then dragged it for around three kilometers in Maulasar in Nagaur district of Rajasthan. The startling incident was caught on camera in which the truck can be seen dragging a car stuck in its front after it hit the vehicle.
The incident took place near Didwana’s Rashidpura village in the state. As per local reports, after the car was dragged by the truck for a couple of kilometers, it finally came to a rest at the side of a road. However, even though the truck had reached a crowded place such as Maulasar, the driver continued to drive the vehicle at a high speed.
Realising that it was a case of hit-and-run, a few of the locals chased down the truck on their cars and bike and managed to stop it at Keechak village, reports said. The truck driver and the helper attempted to run from the scene but the angry locals started pelting stones at the truck and later caught the driver and thrashed him, as per local reports.
A few of the locals finally freed the driver and his helper from the mob and took him to the police station.
Meanwhile, the owner of the car was not injured in the incident; however, the car was completely destroyed after the accident. Last month, a truck driver and his accomplice allegedly thrashed three policemen as revenge after they imposed a fine for rash driving. The two men allegedly assaulted the policemen near Rajdhani College, reports said.
