So now we have two tippers racing against each other that lead to this accident ??

On a more serious note , the guys in the 800 are really lucky to get out alive .. Wishing them a speedy recovery ..

That 800 looks like its made of cardboard! Its a miracle if they survive. In fact, wondering how they didn't get crushed, since it looks like there is no room for them to get out during that accident.

A truck is scary enough for its size. But a truckload of boulders.......

Maybe because yours is the 9th post & not the 123rd. There have been 123 views & only so few comments. The reason is there was no pics, now that i have put them up, see the response for yourself.

What in the world was the truck driver trying to acheive?
Recklessness to the core...!!

I am still surprised as to how the guys in the 800 came out alive !!
Looks like it was a Tata against Tata campaign, and Maruti got in between.

Tata truck against Tata Indica, then 800, then boulders attack the Tata Indigo !!

Maybe because there are no truck drivers on this forum who will justify their speeds or their actions?
