Four killed as bus runs over people in Rajahmundry, Andhra Pradesh

Hyderabad, Feb 1, 2015: Four people were killed and two injured Sunday when a bus ran over people near Rajahmundry in Andhra Pradesh, police said.

The accident occurred at the Rajahmundry-Morampudi junction when the bus - belonging to a private school - was carrying people to a public meeting of YSR Congress Party in Tanaku in West Godavari district.

A 12-year-old boy and a woman were among the dead. The condition of the injured was said to be critical.

The bus driver apparently lost control of the vehicle which hit a car and crushed three motorbikes. The bus overturned before coming to a halt.

Shocking images of the accident were captured on CCTV cameras.

The government has ordered a probe into the accident.

It's been told that the R1 was doing high speeds and rear-ended a stationary tipper lorry. RIP!
People are still under the impression that ECR is a free drive way along the beach while actually it isn't. At least for the last 10 years, it has become like any other city road combining with the fact of our police putting up silly barricades all along!!

Also people should realize that driving on a 4 lane road and 2 lane road is not the same.

Interesting. If you see - the debris of the R1 was almost 50m (?) from where the Etios had stopped. Can that imply something about the bike's speed?

Looking at the spot where the Etios is, it is quite clear that he has crossed the white line and come on to the biker's correct/fast lane - A typical single carriageway accident!

I notice so many exotic cars and motorbikes in the video. Looks like ECR for Chennai is what Kanakpura road is for Bangalore - The same single carriageway that provides a lot of of thrill but is infamous for accidents.

Also, it looks like work is in progress to widen the road. Just how did that guy manage to do such speeds in conditions like these?

IMHO, these days I see a lot of newbie riders with absolutely no riding experience buy exotic bikes. They just do not understand the power these bikes generate and have no idea of proper braking techniques. Added to this, there is no formal riding training/certification, no graduated licensing system, no awareness of safety and poor infrastructure. Going on our roads is akin to suicide these days! God knows where we are heading!

VADODARA: A 47-year-old man was killed in a hit-and-run accident here on Saturday morning. The deceased Kailash Agrawal was a resident of Vasna Road. He was ridding pillion on a motorcycle when a speeding SUV car knocked him down.

Pillion was wearing a half helmet. Sad, money doesn't give people sense. It's suicidal doing 150 on public roads, leave alone 300.

I fully agree with you. I ride to Adigas Kolar every other Sunday and on the way these SBKs pass me at speeds close to 200 kmph. The road is good but there are the usual dogs, cattle, tractors crossing the road any and every where. I had a dog hit on this road in my car going at 110 kmph, so even at 110 -120 if a dog decides to run out you cannot do a thing. Leave alone 180 - 200 that these bikes do.

Then at Adigas, where they usually have breakfast, it is a SBK festival of sorts with about 10-15 of Busas, R1s, fireblades, et al. Pics: Accidents in India-img_20141130_082548.jpg
Some riders come with no protective gear at all while others are well geared up. But all the gear in the world will not protect you in collisions at these speeds.

You know what they say about cars with a lot of safety features, 6+ airbags, etc.: You can have all the safety kit in the world in your car, but you can still be in a freak accident that kills you.

When you're on a two-wheeler, I think the opposite applies: Irrespective of what kit you're wearing (or not) on a two-wheeler, you might be lucky enough to be in a freak accident that you walk away from unhurt.

I come across some of these irresponsible bikers in the BSK 2nd Stage and Jayanagar 3rd/4th Block area almost every weekend. They don't wear any gear, accelerate/brake-check others for fun, try to pull wheelies and act like low-life scum in general. Some of them are sadistic enough to intentionally sneak up on unsuspecting pedestrians/bikers and then rev/take-off loudly, startling some people to the point of causing an accident. I was almost a victim myself last weekend, when I managed to locate this idiot in the mirrors sneaking up behind me with seconds to spare and was able to warn my wife riding pillion to expect an aural assault. Another couple on a scooter ahead (no helmets) were not so lucky and got a mighty scare. The guy barely managed to keep the scooter from toppling while this idiot zoomed off and nearly crashed into traffic waiting at the signal ahead.

Good joke! They are not trained at all! How many of us go to driving school to learn to ride bikes, even regular ones? My elder teaches me, I teach my junior, and so on. The pupils pick up all the follies of the teacher, and then have to unlearn some of them as they go along. The worthy who taught me told me to never touch the front brake!

Come to think of it, how many worthwhile schools are there to teach car driving? And what kind of instructors do they have? Semi literate ex-drivers, that is all.

In Krishna district, at least five persons were killed in a lorry-auto-rickshaw collision at Pedapalaparru village under Mudinepalli mandal. Four more injured were admitted to the Government Hospital in Gudivada. In yet another accident, two persons were killed when the car in which they were travelling hit a roadside tree at Pitchaturu village in Chittoor district.

Looks like case of an overtaking over the continuous white line gone bad. Only, the crash would've happened even if there wasn't a continuous line, given the apparent speed of the bike.

This is something you see all the time on Kanakpura road. The crowd has this suicidal tendency to overtake on curves and narrow bunds/bridges in spite of neatly-painted continuous white lines that prohibit doing so.

But did the collision actually occur close to where the Etios is lying? I can't figure out.

Yesterday came across a fleet of super bikes on nh17, on a 2lane stretch many of them were riding pretty carelessly and overtaking dangerously.
this is the outcome if the luck runs out, howeverin this case the etios seems to have come out of its lane..

It's not a continuous white line. It's a regular dashed line straight section. It's possible that the bike was tailing the faster cars we see later in the video. Given how people drive on ECR, the Etios seems to have made a move to overtake something right after passing the faster cars and caught the biker. Even if the bike was doing 120 kmph, which I really doubt, and the Etios a healthy 80, they will be closing in at an alarming 55 meters per second.
