The car was being driven by a 19-year-old girl
The footage shows the car being driven uncontrollably. It first hits an auto-rickshaw, then a bike and another car, before finally coming to a halt.
A woman is seen emerging from the co-passenger seat, gripped by panic, while others rush towards the injured.
It was being driven by a 19-year-old girl, who was nabbed by others and handed over to the police.
What led to the accident? Police says
Dharavi police said that a case was registered against the errant driver and she was arrested, but later released on bail. Cops said when the traffic light turned red the woman pushed the accelerator, instead of brakes, which led to the accident.
