Default TVM - Swift totalled on Kawdiar Road

Hey guys..
A black swift was completely smashed and totalled on the kawdiar road near the church today. It was doin atleast 100+ and ran over the divider and smashed into an Innova commin from the opp. side. Luckily the driver got away with just minor injurious even tho the car is gone.

Guys, watch out on that road. We all know everyone rips on that road everyday and night, but just watch out and drive safe.

Watch out for LOTS of cops in the commin days as well... I'm sure from the no. of accidents on that road, the cops will nab anyone speedin.

Yes, its the one with the projector lamps modded by Road & Track.

The Innova was a VSSC car, which has some fair amount of damage on the front right side.

The driver of the Swift is pretty safe, luckily, with just a broken nose. Check out the car tomorrow at the Pattom signal and you'll be amazed how lucky that guy was to get away with it.

But why will any one do a 100+ kmph on the stretch? I do not know how the stretch is but 100+ inside the city is certainly unacceptable. Luckily, nobody was hurt much.

Saw it. Heard some rumors too.

Guess the car would be a write-off. The Innova also was smashed up pretty bad. Think it would also be a write-off thanks to crumple zones.

Its very much inside the city. And is one of the places where there is a stretch of wide (4+ lanes) roads here in TVM.

As its adjacent to CCD too, most of the boys come there for show-offs. If you come to TVM, this is the place you start looking for team-bhp'ians.

Which swift variant was it. If he got out with just a broken nose then its a testament to the swifts safety.
