A heavily drunk young man rammed his Toyota Corolla Altis in a house in Sector-8, Faridabad, around 1:30 AM on May 2, 2020.
The country is in its 3rd phase of lockout and nobody has got any clue if there would be yet another phase in the coming days. However, the next phase can be avoided if we end up following the current one with all the protocols and restrictions. But, it seems like people are not bothered about their lives or that of others. Recently, on May 2, a speeding Toyota Corolla Altis in Sector 8, Faridabad, Haryana, rammed into a house, breaking its boundary wall. The driver was under the influence of alcohol. The effect of the accident was not limited to the boundary wall itself.
It can be seen in the video that the Toyota Corolla Altis hit the two scooters parked inside the house and dragged them to the bedroom. According to the owner of the house, there was a sudden noise, which shook them up. They claimed that the debris of the wall flew into their bedrooms, living room, and bathrooms as well. A few doors of the house and windows have also been shattered. While talking of the two scooters, they appear to be totalled. Also, there was a washing machine kept in the open space, which has been destroyed to an extent it’s hard to realize if it was there.
Since Faridabad is declared as a Red-Zone, no one is allowed to potter around the town. Therefore, the guy’s presence with his car at around 1:30 AM is questionable as well. Also, the driver was drunk totally drunk and had no clue of what has happened. This further raises a question about his source of alcohol since the wine shops were closed across the nation till May 3, 2020.
The wall that Corolla hit was 9-inch wide and made of solid bricks.
The car in question here, the Toyota Corolla Altis, it is registered on the name of a private firm, located in Ballabgarh. It should be noted, that all the 6 airbags of the car inflated at the right moment. Thus, the driver of the car walked out of the crash with minor injuries. Also, the Corolla’s chassis has absorbed the impact in a good way. There is no damage to the car after the A-pillar. This signifies the build quality that Corolla Altis possesses. The Corolla Altis is not on sale anymore as the brand has discontinued the car with the arrival of new emission norms. However, it was offered with 2 engine options – 1.8 Petrol and 1.4 diesel. The former produced a peak output of 138 BHP/173 Nm and was offered with a 6-speed MT and a CVT options, while the latter belted out 87 BHP/205 Nm and came mated to a 6-speed MT only.
