I've seen those stickers on some cabs however this was a private VDI - Maybe being used as a private taxi illegally.

@Phamilyman - Do you have a VDI or some other car?

Saw an accident near Tumkur - Sira road, Couple of lorries badly damaged. Could not take pics as it was 3 am in the morning. Anybody else heard about this accident. This is a 4 lane road, was wondering how bad the collision is to have such head damage.

PS: this was not a head on collision

The E270 roof has a big dent which means the car has been toppled and we can notice that real wheel got misaligned!!!.He must have hit some stone or object in the road.

Well despite the rollover, the cabin is more or less intact. Again, testament to Merc safety.

Definately a rollover. The windows are open so was the car being driven with windows rolled down or the glasses broke during the rollover.

I'm sure everyone must have got out safe considering the condition of the cabin unless they were not sitting with seat belts on.

A few months ago, a fellow t-bhp member's brother hit the divider at high speeds on his zma. Luckily he didnt get any serious injuries.

Default Accident on ORR, Bangalore

Hey, this messge has already been posted by fellow bhpian Aloksriva on 19/08/2009. Could not post pictures as I was not a member. got approved today. It was a gruesome accident. A sand laden lorry driven recklessly rammed through a milk carrying auto killing the driver of the auto on the spot (may his soul rip). Newly married just four months. The Lorry then rammed a bike, the signal post, before coming to halt. The bike rider was injured.
Interestingly, my collegue informed that at the signal a road hump was erected by police to prevent such incidents. A day before, the road hump was removed by governmetn officials. Reason: CM and convoy would be passing by the signal and officials does not want our dear CM to fell the hump. And later, they forgot to relay the road hump.
The accident led to a massive traffic pile up for half a day.

The PDF file of Bangalore Mirror issue dated 20th August 2009, Page 4 which carried the artcile is also here

Okay folks, same story same result. Our desi track drivers (taxi driver) was driving along the international airport. Ahead is a donkey crawling at the right side of the road (lorry). Our track driver is impatient, honks horn, but the donkey refuses to budge to left. So our track driver at great speeds turns left in order to over take the donkey. And the rest is history. A wipro staffer lost his life for the careless driving.
By the way, there are confusing reports, that the driver survied. But I doubt?

This stretch of road from Hebbal flyover to international airport has become a killer road with ever increasing accidents.
