According to a telugu news channel, the driver applied sudden brake to avoid hitting a guy on the road.
Due to this the vehicle lost control and toppled.
There were 6 people in the vehicle at the time of accident.

Honestly, I just cannot contemplate ! I am apprehensive of how much the driver can do to prevent any mishap in such instances. I hope you're right.

But Tyre burst on a highway, I presume, would be perilous even at moderate speeds like 70-80 kmph too.Not only would this endanger the lives of people in the vehicle, but also of the unsuspecting pedestrians.

I read that as driver was going too fast and failed to control the car.

Never claimed an auto insurance beforehand, hence i am unclear of the process to follow. Insurance is B2B and cashless.

I'll suggest you show this video to insurance people are take their advice. Did the Commercial vehicle have valid insurance ? If not, he's in serious trouble. Also ask for estimate for damages from the showroom. Present the bill to the CV owner and see if he's willing pay anything. If you can get him to pay you some money, he will not only accept his mistake but also work to not repeat the same in future.

Unless there was any personal injury or unless you want to file a case against the other party, FIR is not necessary. The claim will be processed without it, no worries.

You have good temper, sticking to the business side of the accident. A cool head on the shoulders is what most people lack.

Not necessarily injuries.
If you want to get the bill settled against the third party insurance from the other vehicle's insurance, FIR is must. You need to go to court and get it settled. Both vehicles will be impounded till the inspection is done and report is submitted o the court.

Tyre bursts are terrible and in this case unlikely to make a vehicle loose control instantly and make it jump the median. Radial tyres, as seen on the Innova with alloy wheels, will loose air slowly from any possible place available if overinflated or heated up. Modern tyres are really safe as long as they are used in a safe environment. Have driven over a sickle at 100 kph or more and lost complete rear tyre once, nothing major thereafter. Did not even realise until it fully deflated slowly.

However, on most of our highways truckers and local jeeps stop their vehicles with stones preventing them from rolling and these are left behind once their job is done. They are far more dangerous and can completely offset the balance of the vehicle sending it into opposing lanes or fields, specially at 3 digit speeds.

Feel the pain. I used to be a regular in that area, specially the road opposite food world where the width varies constantly due to vehicles parked. Countless dings and scratches on the cars as memories. The CV is probably not from that area, else it will never maintain the left lane on that road.

You are assuming that the tire was not worn out and nearly bald or out of shape, as many of these taxi or university staff car innovas are .. a tyre burst in such cases can be more catastrophic than in a newer one that's in good shape.

Unhappy Re: Pics: Accidents in India

An accident in the early hours of Friday claimed the lives of three car-borne students of engineering at Thapar University, while another survived with serious injuries, on Bhadson Road in Patiala. The four, students of BTech at the university, were in another friendís Swift Dzire car when it crashed into two poles and also rammed a shop wall, scattering bricks on the road, just after the Thursday-Friday midnight.

Heard that when the crash happened the cars odometer was stuck at 180

I presume you meant Speedometer. It's highly improbable that Swift Dzire can reach 180 kmph..

DZire has a top speed of 170 kmph (V-Box number). So it's quite possible for the speedo to show 180 kmph (thanks to speedometer error). But the driver did not brake at all? Now that's quite odd.

Anyway, according to a research report, there is a very strong correlation between speedo stuck needle reading and actual impact speed.

A friend from same city told that the speedometer was showing 180 kmph of the accidented dzire. i am not sure whether the driver applied brakes or not.

Not that whoever did that is not at fault, but the place looks lit well enough to know there's a trench or at least some work is in progress. The driver is at fault too.
