Default Mahim Accident

Bizarre accident 'replay' kills two



In an uncanny replay of the Salman Khan bakery accident, two bakery workers were killed yesterday.

A Hyundai Accent car rammed into five people outside Shakur Bakery on Veer Savarkar Marg, Mahim, at 3.15 am. Two bakery workers died on the spot, while one sustained serious injuries and two others minor injuries.

As per TOI he said that he saw a cat crossing the reoad and when he braked he lost control of the car.
Kind of off topic here but I myself have expirienced this quiet often that if you break too hard in the accent then you tend to loose control as in the car wants to run away from you i really cant find the right words for what im trying to say but ive tried my best to say it anyways.
I woul also like to add that in some what same kind of incidents in my Honda City/Zen its never happened so im qiuet confused about whom to question the car or the driver(thats myself in this case).

Well if the car was doing about 100 the driver could not have been sleeping!. It has to be something that made the car go out of control!

The accents metal seems quiet flimsy to me even a small bump into the metal and there you have a gaping wide dent. so the picture of the car didnt suprise me at all expected if the car rams into a wall at speeds greater than a 100 i myself feel scared of taking my accent above the speed of 80-90 cause i feel its flimsy but then again recently it gained my confidence again and i did about 130-140 on the highway.

I seen it in the news. I was shocked to look at the state of that accident.

Lets look at the other side of the story.
That car crashed sooo badly, as we say he must be doing 100+.
The driver is safe.

seatbelt thats all that comes to my mind , thats the only thing that could have saved him.just look at that front wheel.gosh people just dont seem to realize that india is not the place to speed. anything can just spring up.open man hole , animal running across, drunk guy walking on the road. divider there are just so manythings that come to my mind and all i can think of is anythin more than 60 in the city in the night specially in an unknown area is asking for trouble.

It was an horrific accident,but as Gordon mentioned it has a positive side to it.The driver survived.I feel really sorry for the people who died in the mayhem.They were innocent people.God bless them.
