A luxury Mercedes Benz driven by a 15-year-old boy who did not possess a driver’s license turned turtle on the Vajira Road yesterday afternoon causing no injuries to the driver or any pedestrian.

The vehicle that had come in a high speed from Thunmulla Junction had taken a sharp right turn to the Vajira Road causing it to topple on the road and crashed into a lamp post, the police said.

Bambalapitiya Police Traffic Branch officials who were conducting inquiries learnt that the brand new car had been driven by an underage boy related to a top official of a leading private bank and insurance agency.

The white colour Benz had received extensive damage in the accident with its driver found unharmed and was placed under the custody of the Poice.

The police had reportedly received several phone calls from certain high profiled individuals demanding to release the teenager and the vehicle but the Bambalapitiya Police did not heed to their plead, the Daily Mirror learns.

The boy’s parents were soon informed about the accident and he had later been released on police bail. (Kurulu Koojana Kariyakarawana)

    What was the city traffic police doing? Should be a child of a Rich man. No actions will be taken for sure.Not second to past regime's boys. If some one injured or killed who will be accountable?

    We must appreciate the police to take action up to this level, with all the pressure from high profile individuals. Keep up the good work police, this is the way to go.
