hehe..guess he would have been much safer in a zen as in the zen would have just gone under the trucks posterior until it would have met the axle
The driver would have probably met someone way up there by then!

Thats very limited imagination u got there! why zen in particular may i ask? when u have the luxury of choosing from cars like Omni, Santro, M800. In fact, it wont take too much to extend ur imagination to two wheelers!
Care to elaborate, mate?

Ajmat, I guess you are referring to the accident near silk board flyover. Even I saw this in the morning, the car is not registered yet says 'For Reg'. The car is really in a bad condition.

It is corrosive for the body paint

Sorry - used to drive a Zen so first recall (I also have an M800 but I never drive it - even think it it)

Yep, when you come from there to Sarjapur Road - could not see registration, too much of a crowd

no problemo.
Anyways, the problem could have also been simply due to the driver being a novice. Hitting the accelerator (or clutch) instead of brake is not exactly unheard of in new drivers. And a new driver in a new car does tend to be a bundle of nerves. But thats all jus speculation.

No one took any pics of the car?

I don't think we can judge a car/driver with just description as "break gave up"

We are just speculating. That is what we will be doing unless and until the driver comes up and narrates what happened. And believing what he is gonna say is another ball game. The Ifs and Buts are always there.

Maybe, the person who started the thread( 50Paise) shud have done some online investigation about the tyre marks, the place of impact, the speed of the car, eye witness, Study the damage etc...hahaha who wud do that jasoosi work.

Lets resume speculating
