He was a Class V student; father and brother escape with minor injuries

NEW DELHI: A 14-year-old boy was killed and at least two persons were injured when a speeding Blueline bus went out of control and rammed into several vehicles at the Rajouri Garden traffic signal here on Sunday.

Morick Sharma, a Class V student of Montessori School, was crushed to death and his father and brother were injured when the bus hit their two-wheeler at 12-15 p.m. They were on their way to Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre in Raja Garden.

The boy’s father and brother sustained minor injuries and were later discharged from hospital.

“The bus hit us from behind and we were dragged a few metres. Morick died on the spot,” said the boy’s father Surendra Sharma.

Bystanders claimed that the driver of the bus was not in uniform and looked a minor.

The driver of the bus, which was plying on Route No. 861 from Jahangirpuri to Tilaknagar, apparently lost control and rammed into several vehicles queued up at the red-light.

The impact caused a pile-up of vehicles and disrupted traffic on the busy intersection.

The bus driver managed to escape and the police have launched a hunt for him.
