By the time authorities cleared the area, nothing but wet ground and broken glass. They tried to barricade the area, but it was too late.
Let he who wouldn’t absolutely love for this to happen on their commute cast the first stone.
When a truck carrying a delivery of liquor bottles hit a divider and flipped in South Delhi, it was every passer-by for himself. After dumping his precious cargo all over the street, the driver “mysteriously fled,” the Times of India reports.
And for good reason: Police suspect he was transporting the booze illegally. They’re still looking for the guy, but his misfortune was the rest of the town’s Best Day Ever. People on bikes riding alongside the scene of the crash found themselves in the right place at the right time, and started grabbing what they could from the wreckage, pulling single bottles are first and then going for whole cases. People with jackets likely thanked their good judgement for bundling up for the day as they stuffed the stuff into pockets.
It’s unclear if, their arms and bike racks full of booze, these lucky few nearby started texting and tweeting to their buddies “FREE GRAIN ALCOHOL IN CHIRAG DILLI” or if the commotion coming from their clattering scramble alerted those nearby, but word spread, and other started showing up with cars. By the time authorities cleared the area, nothing but wet ground and broken glass. They tried to barricade the area, but it was too late. The driver continues at large, hopefully having a drink of his own to calm his nerves after the wreck and count his own lucky stars.
