A teenager and two of his friends were injured when a Ford Figo in which they were speeding along an empty stretch in Salt Lake’s DD Block turned turtle on Sunday evening. The site of the accident is barely 50m from Indira Bhawan where former chief minister Jyoti Basu lived. A witness said: “The car, with the teenager at the wheel, was moving at 100kmph or so with music blaring from the stereo. Suddenly, the driver slammed the brakes. The car spun 360 degrees, jumped the pavement and overturned.” Bystanders pulled the trio out.
