Default Accord Breaks into 3 pieces!

It's reported that the owner was going to attend a wedding. Suddenly, a dog cut across and he tried to avoid it and the car turned around 360 degrees, hit a barrier and split into 3 pieces!!! 3 people died in this crash.
This happened in China and it's reported that Honda is going to make a public apology.
Check out the pics. They are pretty scary!

This is probably one of the most horrifying accident pics i have never come across. A bit similar to what happened to the kids on worli sea face a few years back, sad times . Just scares me abit since i drive my accord like a maniac.Rock-solid build was never a feather in honda's cap. Probably they should work on that abit more. Cant even imagine what speed this guy must have hit at !

The chop looks too clean! might be a bodged repair job or a cut and shut job - where they take a frontal damaged car and a rear damaged one, chop the two and weld two good ends

Ouch! That has gotta be one of the worst crashes I have seen to date. And to think, people were lambasting the worli seaface Ikon for splitting into two.

With Jaggu,

HOLY!!! Man, this shows that no road car is safe. Princes Diana's car crashed at less than 80MPH and you should have seen the state of that.

I have no idea what speeds this guy was doin. Safe driving pays, me going into safe mode for a few days. LOL

hmmm... so its not just india where dogs have a tendency to sprint across the road!
One rule that i have always stuck to... never hit the brakes or swerve to save a dog. Besides, indian insurance companies wont pay a dime if u get into an accident trying to avoid a dog. But the bigger point is that u would probably save more lives by taking one.

Really scary pics and one of the most horriffic I have seen . The other ones were the Ikon seaface acccident and th3 355 accident.

If Dianas S Class "the safest car in th world" couldnt survice or save Diana , this is a Honda Accord and well overall Japanese cars dont have tank like build quality.

Hey,

Let me just mention that the casualties in the Princess Diana accident were due to the fact that they were not wearing seatbelts. The only person wearing a seatbelt was the driver, and he survived.

an we get a hold on the original article on the Accord.

By law (read that as t-bhp law LOL), any photograph or article taken from another website or source, has to have a link leading to that particuler website/source.

Make sure you provide the link to the original article.
