Sophie Choudry escaped a major accident, last night, as a rickshaw dashed into her car at Khar. The accident took place on the 16th Road, in front of Khar Gymkhana at Khar (West) when a speeding auto rickshaw rammed into actress’ Mercedes.
Sophie has not suffered any injury but the bumper of her car is badly damaged. Senior police inspector (Khar Police Station) Sanjay More, confirmed the developments to media. And informed that the incident took place at 9.15pm and the police was alerted at 10.30pm. Here is the picture of her car:
According to a report in Hindustan Times, “The accused – indentified as Anees Ahmed, 21 – was booked under sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and relevant sections of Motor Vehicle act. After being arrested, Ahmed was then produced in a local court.”
Talking to the leading daily, Sophie said, “I was on my way home when the speeding auto rickshaw tried to cut the lane and cross us. He misjudged the distance between the vehicles and rammed his vehicle into my new car, pulling out the grill and bumper. We then stopped him.”
The actress also told the daily that when the driver was asked for his licence, he informed that he does not have one and had started driving just a week ago. “It was ridiculous, he could have killed somebody. We called the police. My car is insured and the insurance will take care of the damage, which is over one lakh. It is upsetting that driving without licence is a prevalent practice, as it poses a threat to citizens.” Sophie said.
