A luxury car was found overturned at a side lawn on Akbar Road in Lutyens' Delhi area on Sunday. The car, allegedly driven by a woman in an inebriated state, had met with an accident and had overturned after hitting a divider on the road. However, neither the occupant of the car nor any person with injuries was found at the spot.
According to the police, the accident took place at around 3 am after which all hospitals in New Delhi and the Central Delhi area were checked, but no information about any injured driver was found.
The car owner was later traced by the registration number of the vehicle and he was informed about the incident.
Following investigations, it was revealed that the injured woman driver was rushed to a hospital by her friends who were travelling in another car. The woman was discharged after first aid, a senior police officer said.
The car belonged to an owner of an IAS coaching academy in the city, he said.
He informed the police that the car was in possession of his daughter, the officer said.
Investigations confirmed that the car was driven by the woman on high speed and she was in an "inebriated state". She lost balance and rammed into the median, he said.
There was another woman in the car at the time of the accident, he added.
"After hitting the road divider, the car flipped several times before coming to a halt. Their friends, who were following them in another car, rescued them and took them to a hospital," the officer added.
The car has been impounded and the woman driver has been fined under the Motor Vehicles Act for driving under the influence of alcohol, police said.
