The driver who overturned a car full of teenagers who pranked him while ringing the doorbell at home has been convicted of murder.

Anurag Chandra, 45, was found guilty by a jury in Riverside, California on Friday of three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of second-degree murder for chasing a car carrying at least six teenagers who allegedly gambled at the “ding dong ditch”. — the prank of ringing a doorbell and then running away — at Chandra’s on the night of January 19, 2020.

Chandra, who did not know the boys, chased the teenagers in her car, an Infiniti, eventually reaching 99mph before stopping them. The Prius carrying the teens lost control, crashing the car into a tree, the Los Angeles Times reported.
