Bel-Air-Rivière-Sèche: Hit And Run By 18 Year Old Young Man With No Driving License

An 18 year old schoolboy residing Bel-Air-Rivière-Sèche was hit by a car on Thursday morning in his locality. The driver of the car, an 18 year old young man, fled after the accident. The Bel-Air-Rivière-Sèche polic arrested the young driver an hour later.

Tushal (name changed), a resident of Bel-Air-Rivière-Sèche, left his home on Thursday at 7: 30 pm to go to a private college in Flacq. He was walking when a gray Toyota Vitz hit him. The driver did not stop. Seriously injured, Tushal was taken to the Flacq Hospital where he was admitted after undergoing surgery.

Police in Bel-Air-Rivière-Sèche could get their hands on the driver, another 18 year old young man. The latter was extensively questioned by investigators and he confessed. He was subjected to a breath test which proved negative. The young driver is a holder of a provisional license (learner) and he told investigators that he was the sole occupant of the car.

“Mo ti anvi montre mo bann kamarad loto”
“J’ai pris la fuite car j’étais effrayé. De plus, la voiture que je conduisais appartient à la compagnie où travaille mon père. Kan monn tape, monn per, monn panike e mo pann kone ki mo pou fer. Le pare-brise de la voiture a été endommagé,” he said. He added that his father was not aware that he had taken the car.

The young man said that on Thursday morning he took the car to show to his friends. “Mon al kolez ar loto parski mo ti anvi montre mo bann kamarad loto la e montre zot ki mo pe roul enn loto nef. Vu que mon père ne savait pas que j’avais pris la voiture, je me suis précipité pour rentrer chez moi après l’avoir montrée à mes amis. C’est en rentrant que l’accident s’est produit. Je présente mes excuses à ce piéton et je suis très triste qu’il soit blessé,” he added. After his interrogation, he was allowed to go home.

For his part, Tushal says he almost died. “Mo ti pe marse dan kwin semin kan loto la finn tap ar mwa. J’ai cru que j’allais mourir car je saignais abondamment. Heureusement que j’ai été transporté à temps à l’hôpital. Cet accident m’a traumatisé. Je remercie ceux qui m’ont transporté à l’hôpital. Sans eux, j’aurais pu perdre la vie. C’est une expérience choquante pour moi et ma famille.” The young man was hit in the head and has multiple body injuries. He is recovering slowly.

The investigation is conducted by the sergeant Jookoo and is under the supervision of the Chief Inspector Thakoor.
