It cannot be a biker. he has definately banged the car in the pole, You can see similar type of dents starrting from boot door to the bumper on lot of cars.

It's a sheer result of slackness while reversing the car.

Can find such dents with fat owners or ladies

No No, I have seen their test mules.(I work in an office just next to them) One is silver, as in the snap and is full of stickering on the sides. This one had no stickers. The other test mule is maroon color, again with stickers on the doors.

Having said that, maybe looking at the response to the Linea, they might have got another test car.

OMG that Amby has caved in to the trucks rear , very rare chances of the driver and co-driver surviving this crash. Also the Accent looks badly damaged.

It's very strange that those vehicles are still parked there considering the fact that its a busy road. I rememeber replying to your post the same time yesterday when you had passed by that road.

BTW i did not happen to cross that road yesterday.

IT seems these kinds of accidents are happening very ofter (or more in news since occupants in front seats generally die). A simple bar can stop car going under the truck. Car is designed to take crash force in front, but with trucks the hit is directly to cabin. See this photo, most places in world have a low bar in the back. I guess there is no rule like this in India or it is not enforced.

There must be a rule, as I see most of the trucks have this bar. But as the trucks are in bad condition, so are their bars. Sometimes the bars are too high!

I think there is a bar rule. I don't know in how many states and how many do actually enforce and implement the rear bar rule

of course there is a rule, but no strict enforcement, as always.

Looks to me like someone rear ended the Xylo which eventually banged a big rig in front.

Looks like it rolled over!

As for the Moolchand/South Ex accident, cars arent there anymore; were being moved yesterday evening - saw them when I was coming back from work. They had been around for at least 3 days, didnt look like anyone was in a hurry to move them.
