Though the article, as you have also, mentions that the fuel attendant was run over, if one sees the video it seems that the fuel attendant escapes and it is one of the motor cycle riders who gets run over. From the video, it looks quite horrifying.

Amazing! The Lorry seems to have its "highly ineffective" tail lamps and indicators on though. Could be a post accident effort. Innova has no tyre marks indicating any signs of hard braking.

In Foggy situations one often one sees a line up of vehicles suddenly parked in the middle of the road probably due the road ahead being blocked due to other similar mishaps. Best to park on the side, have a cup of tea and wait for the weather to clear.

Nine Children Mowed Down by Speeding SUV

Quote:
Muzaffarpur: At least nine children were reported dead and many injured when an out of control Bolero mowed them down on National Highway 77 under Minapur police station in Muzaffarpur district when they were crossing the road after getting out of their school on Saturday afternoon.
RIP the deceased. There seem to be different versions why the driver lost control. One mentioned he was trying to avoid a lady, another mentioned he had another accident and was trying to escape. Personally I feel murder charges should be slapped on the driver.

A bolero runs over school children in Bihar.
Horrible news! I pray for the poor souls.

Saw this on Youtube. Looks like one should be really lucky not to get into accidents while driving in our roads.

This has nothing to do with luck and everything to do with stupidity. Wrong side, blind turn, no helmet....

I don’t have words to describe this rider. My full empathy with the car driver for having to deal with the resultant paper work consequences whatever they may be. I just hope the bike rider survived with minimal injury, as foolish as he is.

Yet another stupid rider again.
Happened in Tirupati.
No information whether the biker survived the accident.

But frankly speaking he doesn't deserve any sympathy at all.
Carelessly cutting across a one-way lane, coming from the wrong direction without even wearing a helmet!
So many violations there and I am not surprised at all.
He was just begging for it.

The poor car driver would be in trouble now.
But I think this video would have helped him to prove his innocence to some extent.

Bike guy is a complete moron.
Wrong side, going blind, no helmet, on a suicide mission clearly. It bewilders me how people have no regard for their own safety let alone others safety.
No way car guy could have anticipated/spotted him in time. Good to see airbags working fine in car and maybe that's why car guy wasn't hurt even a bit. His bad luck to deal with the consequences. If not for this cctv video he would have been blamed for the entire accident.

Also the tractor driver did managed to swerve away from the rider on road as there was no other vehicle/pedestrian to his left

I mean from the car driver perspective -

One more -:(

Quote:
The Jaguar XF driver was travelling at a cruising speed, when suddenly a stray cow emerged on the road. Before the driver could apply brakes, the car banged head on into the cow, who then fell onto the bonnet and then to the windscreen.

The impact was such that the car lost balance and ended on the side of the road after doing a 360 topple. Thanks to the high-end safety features, no injuries were reported and all passengers survived the crash. The cow too survived the impact. But any other day, any other car, the results could have been disastrous.

That biker must have done this a few times, and this time his luck ran out. What did that chap think, he would survive evry time. Its just another one bites the dust. Hope he survived. God help him. Like you said we should keep our fingers crossed not to meet these idiots on the road.

Nothing will happen.

I wonder if, to some extent, we all believe this? But...

Nothing will happen. Until the say it does.
