A couple met with a horrific car accident near Gajroula in west Uttar Pradesh on Monday. The man, 31, died and the woman, 24, was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, but is out of danger.
The police said that the driver of the car couldn’t see a truck coming in from the opposite direction and rammed into it. A case has been filed against the truck driver for rash driving.
But what made headlines ‘interesting’ was not the accident itself but the police report which says that they were naked waist down at the time of the accident, suggesting they were having sex while driving.
What is deplorable is how social media users are reacting to the story.
Here is a snapshot of some comments on the story on a Reddit thread:
We wonder what makes us so insensitive to someone’s death. Instead of discussing their sexual act, we would be doing a great service to ourselves by telling people not to drive recklessly.
Whether on social platforms or anywhere else, can we not just leave our crass humour aside in some cases?
