Almost for all the commercial vehicles in India preventive maintainance means a good wash, Engin oil chane and gear oil top up, with greasing. This is surely a case of Ubolts shearing off.

@ backseat no offence but most of the time than not our road conditions never let us know how the vehicle shouls behave if every thing is allright.

BTW is this a Govt bus??? If yes, then the drivers of these busses changes everyday. And nobody cares about them.

Apparently the bus was "well maintained" and the driver was at fault!

What crap?!! How can the driver be at fault for the axle snapping off? Anyways it sure would have been a moment of terror for the passengers in the bus! The three (?) feet drop must have been a scary moment!

Nitrous if u see the pic the propeller shaft is broken and resting on ground (but is attached to the differential) It "could" be right that the propeller having broken midway still intact with differential ploughed into the road abruptly and the force transmitted to the leaf bolts rupturing and sending the axle out.

Normally most truckers will use a chain running below the propeller fixed to chassis nearer the differential a foot distance from diff. wise geeks!!!

Good theory,2fast.
But,these buses drive too slowly for the prop-shaft to give the diff such a thrust.

exactly but when an accident happens the results are very strange.

I once saw a Comet vertically up against a tree in a military area zone Pune where its not possible to go above 60kmph. It was a sight and every passerby was amused!!!!
