Sad news with Veenu Paliwal! Gosh the media reported something totally different and I believed their version till annoying pop up ads bought me here to get the real version of the news! Sad that a loss due to allergy is reported as an accident.

Folks out there who go riding or driving, we are not a superman or super woman, if u slip, loose your ego and take some rest. Please do it for your family!

This guy was very much in a hurry, constantly swinging left and right behind me, honking all the time. I normally keep a good distance between me and the car ahead, and with the incessant honking I moved left and let him go ahead. He rushed past me in a hurry, and I don't know if he was completely devoid of intelligence or not, but in the overtaking manoeuvre, he went and rammed into the next car head on. I was safe as I had moved to the left lane allowing him to overtake, but I could see the car ahead had a significant damage to his rear end. Both of them stopped of course, but I think if I had not let him move ahead, he might have rammed my car instead. Psychotic idiots on the road these people are. They don't realise that all that go-kart type driving not only damages their own car, but they are likely to lose control at any time and cause trouble to others as well. All that to prove to their friends on face book that they reached from A to B in X hours. Who the heck cares!! Its these type of people that make driving a stressful experience for everyone else!! Worst part of the thing was that the chap had the guts to blame the Swift guy (who got rear-ended) for braking hard.

Thank god you are safe. Good that you allowed him to pass through else it would have been an unnecessary headache. I have seen so many brats like these on highways who like to brag about their supposedly amazing journey time. Its better to steer away from them and reach Point B from Point A safely.

I feel it would be a good idea to list one's blood group, emergency contact numbers, and even allergies and carry it in a handy 'ICE' pouch. Given our awesome roads and traffic, who knows which 'doctor' might lay his hands on us..

Sad to hear the news. And it's disheartening to note the sensationalism injected by the news house. Maybe the rider would have hit 180 on a track and posted it in social media, but look at the way a run-of-the-mill reader would perceive this statement! It's no different from the way some vested interests were seen promoting religious hatred soon after the news of the fireworks mishap at Kollam surfaced. Shame on such media.

May the kith and kin of the departed have the strength to face the tragedy.

If you rear-end someone, you are at fault. Period. The only exception would be if the other vehicle had swerved onto your path. The Polo guy is only trying to escape by blaming the other driver.

My car was rear-ended recently by an Estilo fitted with bull-bars, when I had stopped, with the indicators turned on, to turn right at a T-junction ("dead-end" in Bangalore parlance). This nincompoop had the guts to claim that I "applied sudden brake", hence it's entirely my fault. When I took out my phone and told him I'm going to call the cops, he mellowed down and paid up for the damage caused. Though I had to shell out an extra amount to fix it, I was happy that his car's bumper cracked at multiple places and the hood also got visible dents - served him right

The facts are completely under dispute. Other posts allege a ruptured liver but no allergy. Let's refrain from commenting at the moment except on the needless sensationalism.

Sounds good on paper (or forums), not in real life. On Indian roads, biceps and the amplitude of your voice matter more.

Got rear ended by a bike last year while at a traffic signal but had to apologize to avoid an argument because there were two of them and twice my size. Better to shell some money on repair of the car than to fix an appointment with the doctor.

Saw an overturned auto on the Old Airport Road in the direction of Golf Links - Koramangala side. I was driving on the other end heading to GLBP. Nowadays I take an auto on most days to prevent the headaches of traffic but I've seen that most of the autos have terrible drivers who thrive on cutting off other vehicles, bad gearing which causes the auto to stall or jerk, sudden braking, overspeeding on turns etc. It takes little for an auto to tumble or get crushed when caught in the wrong end of such violations.

Btw most of whom I saw in the city seem to be driving like drunk loons today, specially the Etios/Tavera cabbies and of course the ricks.

Agree. You may want to go through this thread (Dashcam saves the bigger vehicle from being fleeced).

However, one look at a picture available on NDTV, the fall doesn't seem to be a minor one.

Er.. that doesn't look like a bike that's been through a high speed crash, does it? At least to me, it doesn't.
Anyway, it's futile to speculate the speed and cause looking at pictures. Let's wait for more details.

RIP.
She was wearing full protective gear, and probably that's what saved her from the accident. The shocking news is about the injection that reacted and led to her death. I had read about her a while ago and she was never a rash driver.

Surely media is to blame here to spread wrong news. This gives such a bad impression to all about the 2 wheeler riding.

RIP

Well,its really sad that someone has died an untimely death, but lets not start reacting against the media right now, what I have heard is that the postmortem has been conducted and the cause of death has been described as a damaged lever, sometimes the external injuries are very minor and the damage to the internal organs causes severe internal bleeding, same happened with Gopinath munde, again I have just heard this and cannot confirm about the postmortem report.

R.I.P

My HOG brothers had reached Vidisha. A post mortem was carried out today. She indeed died due to Liver rupture which caused internal bleeding. She was given a anti tetanus shot and a pain killer, but that had nothing to do with the cause of death.

Also latest information is that they were on moderately high speeds i.e. 90-100. On a sudden turn she was unable to turn the bike and went down the road along with the bike. Got internal injuries. Hence collapsed in few minutes. She always had safety highest on her priority list as this video will show.



Let all speculation rest. Condolences to the bereaved family and may her soul rest in peace...

May she RIP.

Fully concur about the internal injuries part. My friend's 65 year-old (very fit) father went into a coma 2 hours after he hit his head on the door frame of his car while in ang an emergency braking move. He had only a mild swelling at first, but it rapidly grew into a huge lump in 1 1/2 hours time. Luckily they had the sense to move him to an ICU where a CAT scan showed massive internal bleeding.

By God's grace, he came out his coma in roughly 3 days time totally unscathed.

This is why after any major household bumps/mishaps (especially to stomach/head) a close watch should be kept on the individual for any strange signs like sudden sleepiness, swellings etc.

External injuries are obvious but internal ones, especially untreated ones in the 'golden hour' are the real killers.

However, the medical experts — after conducting the autopsy over a period of one hour — dismissed Tanwar’s suspicions. “A compressive injury caused by a hard object, possibly the motorbike’s handle or a wall, ruptured her liver badly — triggering excessive internal bleeding and her eventual death. She was administered an anti-tetanus injection at the PHC, which was not wrong treatment at all. Any patient of trauma is given an antibiotic, anti-tetanus and anti-inflammatory treatment at the outset,” eye specialist Dr RK Sahu told HT.
Quote:
She was reportedly riding her bike at over 110 kmph when the accident occurred on the Sagar-Vidisha-Bhopal highway around 6.30 pm on Monday.

RIP.
