The lorry seems to be damaged bad and the another vehicle might be a heavy vehicle or SUV.
Nope, I couldn't find any other damaged vehicle on either sides of this lorry for 0.5 Km. Its still a puzzle to me!!! Is the lorry in such a shattered stage that all the parts could fall apart?

That's the tractor trolley with a double-tyred axle, which has toppled over. Such trolleys are fairly common.

I am sure that this what the 'Reclaim you life' tagline by TATA means truly for Safari!

Maybe temporary registration for public vehicles. Probably they were planning to register it as a Taxi.

Even I thought the same, till I saw by brother's private car having temp regn came with red lettering on yellow background. Maye be the dealer messed up but then he is a Maruti dealer so he should not be needing this much. What I have seen in Kerala is that taxi vehicles on temp regn come with red lettering on yellow background while private vehicles come with red lettering on white background.

It is a Mahindra Xylo. It rolled for 200-250 Ft. It seems 4 foreigners were killed in that accident.

Same here. Sights like this are very common on these roads. I was told that most of the accidents happen due to speeding or drunken driving.

are you sure that's a xylo? that looks more like a santro (see the steering wheel and door handle). if i'm not wrong, xylo has a 4-spoke steering wheel.
