Lol man! It would be something like:
3AM, got up started at 3:30, reached xyz, had breakfast, bump.. Flipped 3 times and got back home.
Why do you need a travelogue for that?
No offences meant man, but you are having tough luck with your car.
Drive carefully..err..extra carefully!

Please also add two major reasons of accidents on highway

1. Sleep
2. Alcohol

Boss,

If you had read carefully, you'd have read that he has traversed the length and breadth of the country in Spark / Alto.

Oh My God! On the first look it looked like a Ford Ikon. Then saw the FIAT logo. Is this a total loss or can be repaired? I hope there were no casualties though!

I saw this on the way to work on 6th April.

It is a Ford Fiesta. Looked like he was taking a U-turn and got rear ended.

The rear passenger side (not seen in the picture) was badly mangled.

This is bound to happen when one tries to take a quick U-turn even after seeing another vehicle coming from the other side .
