Driver cheats death after being hit by drunk

A motorbike rider miraculously escaped serious injury after finding himself the last in a series of obstacles hit by a drunk driver in the wee hours of yesterday morning.

Police said that the suspect was smashed when he proceeded to run this Toyotal Corolla into a series of 11 traffic barriers along Russian Boulevard in the capital’s Prampi Makara district.

Slowed down by the collisions, the car only managed to inflict minor damage by the time it hit the motorbike. The drunk driver fled on foot while the moto’s owner dusted himself off and took the bike to get repairs.
