The Hush Post: A celebration turned sad when groom’s vehicle ran amok over the wedding procession thereby injuring  at least 25 people, including women and children in Janjgir-Champa district of Chhattisgarh on Monday night. The entire incident was captured on video. The video shows people dancing on the road to a popular film song. Suddenly, an SUV ploughs into the crowd, and the music is drowned by screams, the NDTV reported on Tuesday.

Around 25 people were injured and nine people are critical in hospital after the bridegroom’s SUV rammed his wedding procession in Chhattisgarh’s Janjgir-Champa district on Monday night. The horror has been caught in a chilling video that the police are examining closely.
The groom was travelling in the Scorpio that was moving along with the wedding procession, progressing at a traditional slow pace with men, women and children stopping frequently to dance.

The driver of the SUV allegedly lost his nerve and pressed the accelerator instead of the brake, hitting several people. Then he tried to reverse, slamming into more people in the process. He later climbed out of the car and escaped. The police are investigating reports that he was drunk.
