Spotted this sad sight at NH-Bye pass at Calicut which has turned to be the most accident pron sone. More over these tipper guys is very much care-less & over speeding when the tipper is empty. By God's grace non is seriously injoured.

Looks like the tipper tried to overtake the M800, and then suddenly swerved back onto the same lane.

That Scorpio's taken a beating! Wonder if the driver survived.Going by the looks of the impact,might be hard for anyone behind the wheel to come out alive.

Wow! Single carriageway, fairly sharp left-hander (assuming the Scorp was travelling towards the camera), driven fast and misjudged the curve, ran wide on the bend, got sideswiped by a truck. Truck drove away.

SUVs are faster on highways? It's all in the mind - and the bend...

Looking at the damage, it could have been travelling in any direction.. higly likely that it spun after the impact and is facing this way now.

From all the stickering on his front windscreen, I wouldnt be suprised if it was a case of poor visibility and high speeds than a poor judgement. Why do people do such stickering on the front windshields when it can seriously hamper your visibilty? Arent these illegal too? or only dark sunfilms taken into consideration?
