The truck seems to have suffered relatively more damage than the auto rickshaw!!

My guess would be the truck hit a fixed structure on the road before hitting the rick. Hence the damage to the truck.

@SPITFIRE, while you're at it, take videos of drivers collecting money, giving tickets, giving change while driving through busy traffic....or while stationary in the middle of the road blocking the entire traffic.

Man.. you are too judgmental about accidents. Do you even know that in case of being rear-ended, even law considers it to be the mistake of vehicle hitting from behind and not that of the one which is being hit?

Yes sure, you could be correct keeping in mind the fact that autowallahs have the tendency of flouting all possible traffic rules. However, the authority with which you have blamed the poor auto driver, methinks you have witnessed the accident in person - which of course is not the case.

Therefore, please refrain from being judgmental and passing yet another irresponsible and immature statement on this forum.

Wow that Volvo seems to have taken a very strong beating. Looks like the crash was at a high speed.

Knowing the tendency of Autorickshaw drivers to stop anywhere. I dont blame the vehicle which rear ends them. In any accident involving an autorickshaw, I would first balme the autorickshaw driver. I have seen too many incidents to come of with this skewed but plausible reasoning.

Only yesterday I saw a autorickshaw stop on top of KR Puram hanging bridge. Take a Uturn and come down the wrong side. Any vehicle with ABS, airbags, EBD, and wings could have rear ended that autorickshaw at 20kmph.

Totally agree with the fact that autorickshaws have the tendency of doing stunts on roads and pulling it successfully on account of mercy of other road users. Yet - innocent, unless proven otherwise.. all the more because of being rear ended where it is the responsibility of vehicle behind to ensure it does not bang into the one ahead of it. At least this is true on papers, not in real life on Indian roads where you have stunt performing autos!

Pray, how can an auto coming from the wrong side be rear ended?

He stopped in the left lane, without any signal. Took a full right, moving from left lane to right lane. And came down the wrong side. He could have got thulped from the rear by a Dzire when he stopped in the left lane.

Default Brilliant execution by i20 on Vittal Mallya Road, Bangalore

This apparently happened on UB City Property, Vittal Mallya Road, Bangalore, at about 6am today morning.
Seems the guy got tempted to test his drive (some say he was slightly drunk and some say he was involved in a drag race)

The front end of the car is out. Bumper, grill, radiator, even the engine seems jolted out from its location.

The road was newly done and now the UB City authorities have apparently asked him to shell out 2 lacs for charges towards damage to private property, which i think is justified given the pains they have taklen todevelop and beautify the road

what you see as ripped off here are stone pillars that used to stand before the car combed them

I still wonder how the tail lamp area got bruised. When I saw it today morning the RH tail lamp was hanging by its wires. But by the time i took this pic in noon, it was just kept in its place.

Ouch ouch ouch. The thuds this guy must have heard. He would have thought. Oh God! Now I'm done.

That Volvo has been literally ripped apart. Did it slam a stationary truck?
i20 doing some bulldozing work there.

Hope the guy goes to jail if he was indeed drunk.

About UB asking for damages they will have to deal with the insurer of that vehicle. Hopefully the owner is smart enough not to fall for these crooks.
