Driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol is extremely dangerous. In a shocking incident that surfaced online a few days ago, a drunk Honda BR-V driver from Odisha’s Bhubaneswar hit a bike and dragged it along for almost a kilometer. According to the report that has surfaced online, the person driving the Honda BR-V SUV was under the influence of alcohol and had no control over the vehicle. The BR-V driver initially crashed into a car and even allegedly ran over a woman on the road. When the locals tried to stop the car, the driver crashed into the bike and tried to flee the spot while dragging the bike in front.

From the video that has surfaced online, it appears that the car in question is a Honda BR-V. It seems that the SUV was being driven at a speed that one would call above normal. The two-wheeler is wedged between the car and the road in front. The driver is dragging the scooter in front. It seems like the scooter belongs to the woman whom the driver had hit before. There is no clarity on that at the moment. The driver is recklessly driving on the road, and we can see sparks coming out of the road after the metal parts on the scooter were rubbing against the road.

The video was recorded at night, so we do not have information available regarding the surroundings and the driver. The woman hit by the car was later admitted by the locals to a nearby hospital. The woman suffered a fractured leg along with other minor injuries.

The owner of the car was identified along with his residence. The owner lived in an apartment near Patia in Bhubaneswar. After receiving complaints about this irresponsible behavior along with proof in the form of video, cops started an investigation and located the owner. The cops took the car driver into custody and also seized the car for his behavior.

Reports suggest that the owner was driving the car under the influence of alcohol. This is not the first time we have come across an incident like this from India. There have been cases where people have actually lost lives after driving a vehicle after drinking alcohol. By posting this story on the website, we would like to draw your attention to why driving is not recommended after drinking.

The driver of this Honda BR-V SUV had no control over the vehicle. Intoxicated individuals often have compromised senses and slower response times to road obstacles, posing a risk not only to themselves but also to other road users.

He might not have crashed into the scooter intentionally but, because of the alcohol, he couldn’t avoid the crash even when he wanted to. The driver not only put his own life at risk but also the lives of other road users. It is likely that the cops would have suspended his driving license after this act. We also hope that he would have learned his lesson and won’t repeat the same.
