That's quite a distance ! Seriously do not understand what was he trying to do and how he missed noticing the divider. Must be drunk and driving, and high speeding case.

Please wear seat belts. Just because of wearing one, I didn't even move a inch at the time of impact which saved me from banging my head on the window. Else, I'm not sure what would have happened.
That'a a bad and sad thing!! Hope you are covered well in terms of insurance. Did you file a police complaint against that Eicher? He should be arrested for dangerous driving!!

Yes. Called 100 and informed, a traffic police came. Surprisingly, they were very helpful. Need to go and get the FIR copy.

Spotted this nasty multi-car pileup on the Lonavla ghats. These cars were coming down, right after that tricky tunnel which has a sharp turn at its exit (catches many drivers out).

On the right side of the bus were 3 smashed cars lying perpendicular to the road. A grey EcoSport in between, with a Superb (not visible in this pic) on the other side. Must say, the EcoSport took the sandwich surprisingly well. Strong structure . No one appeared hurt inside.

An update on the Hummer accident reported in the previous pages.

The guard has succumbed to his injuries on Monday night.
May his soul RIP.

I hope they charge the culprit with first degree murder and punish him accordingly.

Arrest? Lol, they just seized the vehicle, RTR inspection and then that guy will pay fine in the court. Rest we need to take care like the amount that has to be paid after the insurance claim etc.

This morning while passing through ISRO circle Marathalli, noticed an accident between a RMC truck and a Swift Dzire. Looks like RMC truck was taking the wide U turn and the Swift guy might have tried to sneak out from the left side of the truck. The impact was mostly on the driver side door/B pillar area. Sorry, no time to stop and take pics.

Got this on facebook. It happened near Salem-Namakkal by-pass. News is that passengers are safe with minor scratches. Surely, love the build quality of ford vehicles. I also own a ford and can say that they really tough!!!

Seeing the picture of Ecosport accident, it is hard to believe that passengers are safe with minor scratches. Kudos to Ford's build quality!!. Ecosport does took the beat and safeguard the occupants. Sadly the car is brand new and yet to get registered.
