In a shocking incident, an amateur-driver rammed into a petrol pump in Kannauj district of Uttar Pradesh. In the CCTV footage that has gone viral, a man who is reportedly a learner-driver, is seen to have run over a person while he was refuelling his bike.

Escaping death, the driver of the two-wheeler, along with the station employees, have received minor injuries. Meanwhile, the police has taken the driver into custody. In the video, people are seen running to save themselves as the car approached them. Soon after, people gathered at the spot and tended to the injured, who were badly hit by the speeding car.

According to the report by Union Road Transport and Highways Ministry, road accidents killed 1,50,785 people across India in 2016, up from 1,46,000 deaths in 2015. That is 17 deaths and 55 road accidents an hour in 2016, one of the highest in the world.

(The Quint, in association with BitGiving, has launched a crowdfunding campaign for an 8-month-old who was raped in Delhi on 28 January 2018. The baby girl, who we will refer to as 'Chhutki', was allegedly raped by her 28-year-old cousin when her parents were away. She has been discharged from AIIMS hospital after undergoing three surgeries, but needs more medical treatment in order to heal completely. Her parents hail from a low-income group and have stopped going to work so that they can take care of the baby. You can help cover Chhutki's medical expenses and secure her future. Every little bit counts. Click here to donate)
