A 17-year-old boy died after he collided with an auto-rickshaw as he lost control while trying to overtake the vehicle in Kanpur. The accident was caught on a CCTV camera installed in the area.
Arjun, a Class 12 student, had gone to attend a wedding with his friend where they both stayed overnight, Arjun’s family said. The next day, at 8 am, his friend lent Arjun his scooter for some work.
While returning, he tried to overtake an autorickshaw but lost control and collided head-on with the auto’s tyre, before completely falling on the road. He died on the spot.
The police informed Arjun’s friend about the accident and the body was sent for post-mortem after identification.
