Quite an impact that must've been for the Volvo. Now, talking about all those rashly driven B7Rs in the city, this one seems to be one major looking casualty(in terms of damage) for the BIAS routes.

Am sure driving on the stretch from Hebbal - Airport and back by now would've given you enough evidences as to how the drivers of these buses overspeed and cut lanes. I think, this is a lesson for many of them belonging to "that" lot.

There are certain things like the "Panel Headlamp Support" which are being replaced but they also have costs involved for denting (what gives?). If a panel is new there shouldn't be any cost involved for denting/repairing it.
R/RF = Remove/ Refit.

These parts have to be welded back to the chassis so the cost is for CO not for denting the.

2 techies killed in accident | Deccan Chronicle

Quote:
Hyderabad
July 26: Two techies who were triple-riding on the wrong side of the road died when a car hit their bike at high speed on the Panjagutta flyover late on Saturday night.
B. Suresh, 26, a software engineer, Mohammed Sameer, 27, also a techie, were killed when a car heading from Begumpet to Mehdipatnam hit their bike. Suresh flew off the flyover, fell on the road below and died. Sameer died on way to hospital.
Their friend, Anantaswamy, a realtor, is recovering, police said. “The car driver drove away from the scene,” said the sub-inspector, Mr Srinivas Reddy.

The Hindu : Front Page : Two techies killed in ghastly accident

Quote:
Case booked
Suresh was a native of West Godavari district while Sameer belonged to Krishna district and was staying in a rented house at Mehdipatnam.

Punjagutta Sub-Inspector U. Srinivas Reddy said a case of rash and negligent driving was booked against the cab driver and efforts were on to trace him.
I wonder how many people would have been able to avoid crashing into them.

I doubt it. This is India, the bigger vehicle is always at fault.

I use this flyover quite a lot. Have seen bikes on the wrong side, a couple of times. Will they learn it. NO.

My post about another flyover in this wonderful city with some of the the dumbest drivers.

Ambulance got away.
But the Sumo was stuck at an awkward angle.

The sumo finally had to drop the idea for a U Turn and carry on straight.
Left a long pile up on the opposite side.

The next U Turn is about 1 km away.
The Sumo was trying to avoid that.

Exactly! I mean if the guys were on the wrong side then they were at fault. Tracing the car/cab who hit them is one thing, but booking a case for negligent driving ?
It is plain difficult to drive when you notice someone coming your way from the wrong side suddenly, and you never expect one.

Btw On my only trip ever to Hyderabad in 2005 (When Lonavla Became Hyderabad :D). I did find it amusing to see many people riding on wrong side & staring at you as if you are in wrong direction. Have things changed?

girishbhat,

Absolutely scary experience. Boy! Are you guys lucky to have escaped with your lives. I've always noticed some really erratic drivers on that stretch of highway and have always let them pass me fully knowing that they are drunk. I guess with the crack down and early closure of pubs in the city, people are heading out to drink on the highways and end up like this.

This has featured in today's BM. Seems the driver was sleepy and doing 120 kmph. 3 injured. An elderly couple who saw off their son to Muscat and the other being the driver himself, who apparantly is out of danger.

This stretch is a breeze at 5:30 AM, but there are some dangerous spots which rock the car like it were sailing on high sea waves.

The Times of India Chennai edition has a picture of a bus sitting pretty on the divider at Chamiers road.. ..

Looks like a bus ferrying employees of our company, and it happened in the heavy rain last night.

PATH BREAKING: A private bus crashed into the median after the driver lost control on Chamiers Road in Nandanam on Monday night. There were no passengers in the bus - Source: Times of India, Chennai edition.

Is this TCS or CTS?

Now thats really hi-tech, in Mumbai luckily no such issues. Infact my colleague once bullied a cop since he didnt have a receipt of him speeding. He showed him the ad agency card and said he'll go to the press and all.
