To walk out of that alive is a miracle. To get into that sort of accident takes gigantic amount of stupidity too.

And for anyone out there thinking they can drive that like this and get away with it, there is a reason why all of us have called it a miracle!

PS: Saw the BMW accident in Jaipur - This is exactly what a young age + power + alcohol + night driving can do. The punishment for DUI is so ridiculously laughable. It's like handing people a licence to kill with no repercussions. For me, I draw parallel to the gun crimes in USA to DUI accidents in India.

Unhappy Re: Pics: Accidents in India

Around 4:30 AM today on my way back from Airport saw 2-3 cars with heavy frontal damage across both sides of the divider on the flyover right after the toll booth. Couldn't click any pics as I was driving and didn't want to add to the commotion by stopping for the same. Plus the ambulance was right behind me and I moved to the side to make way for it. All cars were your typical Indica cabs, the windshield in one of them bearing the mark of a crack caused due to lack of seat belts in such scenarios. I could not assess the actual situation as the flyover was crowded with bystanders.

Could not find any news articles on the same. Anybody has any idea what happened ? Would have happened sometime between 4 and 4:30 as I had passed the same spot half an hour earlier on my way to airport to drop my relatives. I hope no lives were lost.

Well yes, anything that can help save a life is worth doing.Who knows, seat belts could have been one of the reasons for those two people walking alive from the scene .

Well said ! May be it will be a god gift to those people, who are alive and can see how and what went wrong in the accidents they are involved in (because of the CCTV footage). May be a second chance to them, for avoiding it (if at all - given the rise in no. of accidents in the country).

Today I witnessed the most idiotic accident on Earth.

There's a gym on the podium level of my office building. As a result, you have people speeding down the podium before taking a sharp right turn for the gym.

One hero decided he'd drift on the podium never mind the tiled floor offering no grip and was wet, and the fact that the Thar isn't reputed for the best brakes.

I watched him speeding up on the straight bit and wondered what the hell he was doing. A few seconds later, I hear a bang and the Thar bounces off the retaining wall (the podium is four stories high. Had the wall given way, he'd have gone straight into the apartment building that's cheek by jowl.

The ensuing carnage was a shredded right tyre, and a crumpled left side. Without changing the tyre and avoiding going to the gym, the hero clad in muscle vest and pajamas decided to beat a hasty retreat.

Surprisingly the Thar was still drive able and I don't know what was the final damage to it.

I wish I'd recorded a video!

A badly damaged Santro on the NICE road. The other car involved was a linea which had damages to the right side doors. No idea on how exactly this happened. But it looked like a overtake move which went horribly wrong and Santro hit the wall on the side and turned to the opp side of the traffic.

An i20 failed to take a 90 degree bend and ran off the road. Two young chaps allegedly drunk escaped with no major injuries. Happened in between Mavelikkara Kayamkulam state highway. Interestingly there are huge humps placed at the beginning of the bend to prevent overspending in this area.

Came across this video in Facebook. Look like this happened somewhere near Bangalore on a 4 lane highway.

That's quite an old video, it happened on the Bangalore Mysore highway.

Those bumps could be the cause of losing control of vehicle. No proper road engineering goes into placement of design of these things.

Hope there were no serious injuries or loss of life in this mishap.

On a lighter note, this picture "MAY" have just exposed the Maruti's biggest kept secret:


Which was designed first, Ertiga or Ritz ??

Hit & Run: Another day, another accident:

We often read reports on how a rider falls and a heavy vehicle crushes the victim to death soon after the fall. Well, this one would have been the same if it was a heavy vehicle and not a Santro here which was able to brake in time!


We also read how in cases like these, if the accidents have occurred at odd hours, it becomes almost impossible to trace the other vehicle.

In this case too, the HGV managed to hit the 2 wheeler very dangerously and then just run away.

While others stopped instantly to offer help, I didn't as I saw the HGV simply revv up and vanish. Didn't want this one to end up as just another day for the driver and hence started to chase at least to get hold of the licence plate number and I was successful in doing that - KA51 B2005 and a double check on the RTO Portal confirms that:

Pics: Accidents in India-hitrun.jpg

As you can notice in the video, the trucker was frantically trying to escape the scene and you can see him running helter skelter and turns left towards Krupanidhi.

Out of curiosity and common sense that these driving antics for sure will have a nicer record when it comes to violations, I found these when I checked online for the violations and the second violation type confirms that the history behind Rash driving.

I then assumed this truck would reach the Madiwala Police Station Junction via Market Road and rushed there through a shorter route (for cars) to alert the cops but to my misfortune, there was not even a single cop at this junction today who I could communicate this to.

Hence, I reached work and posted this on BTP's Facebook Page with all the details:

The truck for sure swerved left in a hurry to avoid swiping with the bus next to it or rather was unsuccessful in overtaking the 2 wheeler in time and avoid a collision with the bus and instead ended up swiping the 2 wheeler and making them fall.

You can notice how the tail of the truck hits the back of the pillion rider before they fall. I could also notice the thick jacket of the rider freshly torn around the shoulder area.

Lucky was the pillion here for not wearing the helmet too!!
