@sankar : How did this happen ?
The crash look like the biker wanted to do some lane cutting or the truck driver decided to change direction without warning.

Exclamation Hmmm...

While on the topic of CNG cylinders... here is a BIG cylinder ;-) Not sure whether this is LPG or CNG.

Saw this scene close to Palamaner while driving towards Kadapa in Dec 08. The sign-board says..."YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE. Drinking and driving cont go together". It certainly caught this truck driver's attention !

The biker was going straight and the truck took a left turn without warning! The worst part is the truck is back on the roads!

Nazim, thats horrible. Glad to hear that the rider is safe albiet with some minor bruises. The crowd should have thrashed the driver black and blue and then "let LAW take its own course".

Seem like a head on collision between a Tata Indica and Scorpio at the Sarjapur - Attilbele road on Sunday; A local tractor was hauling the Indica away the entire front portion appeared smashed (crumple zone effect i guess); the Scorpio had its drivers side wheel bend and the windscreen smashed.

It was pitch dark at 7:30 PM when we were driving and hence could not take any pictures.

When this idiots will learn. They take life risk for their passenger. Un-manned Railway track is common In Indian Railway.
Recently there was a accident in Lingarajapuram in Bangalore. And people do demand a railgate over their. But will these accident will stop if there is railgate until vehicle driver become responsibility.
Can any one imagine this situation in Bangalore (Hi-Tech City.)
A train has to stop in rail gate to pass few Cab/Car/Tractor/motor cycle. Yes this may seem diff but true. In Hoody Junction neat ITPL all the vehicle will try to go ditching other vehicle and build a traffic on rail track. And many a time train has to stop.

So whats next? Remove the dividers - as they are dangerous? DUH !!!

The truck drivers dont want to , or , cannot afford to get eye checkup.
Most trucks dont have proper headlight and taillight in working order.

I don't see any damage on the Landcruiser. Did it crash, or just stall?
