Oh my God !!

its seems a Maruti 800(See the front head light,front seat).
And the front two tyres are worn out.
No life left for those tyres. it may be a cause of accident
(Low grip in case of hard breaking).

Yes its a M800 and you are right about the tyres. It might have happened due to an overtaking m[FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']anoeuvre gone wrong. Really, really sad.[/FONT]

Is it a 15 years old photograph?

OUCH!
That must have hurt!
Someone was talking about this on the weird and wacky threads, about putting the spare wheel on the rear door. That costs unnecessarily as is seen here.
BHPian beware!

Default Accident of a nano car.

Spotted a nano car in the Alleppey - Changanassery road in Kerala this morning. Thank God, the solo passenger was not hurt seriously. As per the local report, accident took place at around 4am this morning and the car was lying upside down. Couldn't manage a pic of that as I was rushing to my clinic (I work nearby). By afternoon the recovery process of the car was started. Posting few of the pics I managed to click. Pardon the low camera quality.

Goodness gracious! First Nano crash on T-bhp. From the broken poles and bent rims it seems like a high speed crash!

As much as i hate to think so, I feel that's the first of many Nano crashes to come.

Surprised that the car did not end in the water body. It looks like a sharp incline from road.

As a nano owner - I AM ONE HAPPY man after seeing a example of its crash-worthiness.

Accident-regret apart; that has to be one strong design to withstand that impact. However flimsy the body panels are - the overall O shaped frame has held up.

Yes, it was an high speed impact. You can notice the concrete pillers bearing red reflective stickers which acts as a barricade shattered. Thank God that the paddy fields around are undergoing harvest. Thats the reason for low water levels. Seeing the crash, I too am surprised that the passenger was intact.
