A high-speed incident involving a Porsche sports car on Golf Course Road near Sector 27 left the vehicle in ruins after it veered off the road and collided with a tree, resulting in a devastating fire. The local authorities reported that the driver of the car, identified as Mankirat Singh, a 35-year-old resident of Sushant Lok-1, suffered severe burn injuries on his arms and legs and was promptly admitted to a private hospital in Sector-38 for medical attention.
Disturbing images of the incinerated Porsche circulated on social media platforms, showcasing the aftermath of the incident. While most parts of the car were reduced to molten debris, intriguingly, the Porsche monogram on the rear end managed to survive the intense flames.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Nitish Kumar Agarwal confirmed that Singh claimed to have been alone in the vehicle at the time of the accident. According to Singh’s statement, he lost control of the car while attempting to avoid a dog that unexpectedly darted onto the road.
Good Samaritans present on the scene immediately rushed him to a nearby private hospital and promptly informed his family of the unfortunate incident.
The impact of the collision was so forceful that the 911 Carrera model, a two-seater sports car with an approximate value of ₹2.2 crore, erupted into flames moments after the crash. The vehicle’s remnants were strewn across the area, with certain parts found up to 100-150 meters away from the accident site.
Investigating authorities revealed that Singh had been returning home after attending a birthday celebration when the mishap occurred. It was approximately 4 a.m., and the surroundings were enveloped in darkness. The car initially struck a median near a traffic signal in Sector-27 before vaulting over a service lane and colliding with a tree. Agarwal surmised that Singh, in his attempt to avoid the dog, abruptly maneuvered the vehicle, causing him to lose control. The car, registered in Chandigarh and boasting the distinctive number ‘911’ matching the vehicle model, suffered catastrophic damage.
Remarkably, despite the immense impact and subsequent blaze originating from the engine, Singh managed to extricate himself from the vehicle just in time to evade further harm. Firefighters and emergency responders swiftly arrived at the scene, but the intense heat caused the car’s high-strength aluminum body to melt entirely.
While Singh has not yet lodged a formal complaint with the police, his statement has been recorded, and investigators have conducted a thorough examination of the accident site. Attempts to contact Singh for further details or comments on the incident proved unsuccessful at the time of reporting.
The unfortunate incident serves as a reminder of the potential dangers that can arise when high-performance vehicles encounter unexpected obstacles on the road. Authorities continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident in order to ascertain the precise sequence of events that led to the fiery outcome.
