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.

The can sell the car as scrap if indeed they are looking for a compensation.

Looks like the 9400 series.

Once again highlights the importance of having seat belts for all passengers in these high speed machines.I always make it a point to wear my seatbelts whenever available in these buses.I remember a recent incident ,when the B7R i was in was involved in a near head-on collision near Hassan on the Nh48.I was wearing seatbelts,but the one besides me was thrown from his seat into the cleaner in front of us.

No doubts that the bus must have been speeding ...but i am sure that this trailer wouldnt be having its tail lights or any other warning lights on.

I sincerely wish court orders two options for the reckless drivers who cause these type of accidents...
1. The registered owner to pay for the damages, even if the vehicle is under hypothecation & insurance coverage provided only for concerned person/vehicle.
2. If the registered owner is unable to pay, then the owner (along with the driver) has to work to put the damages back into place.

Of course they should ask him for money. Shouldn't third party cover such issues - you are responsible for the damage you cause others!

Default Four killed and five injured in a gruesome accident

Four members of a family were killed and five seriously injured in a gruesome accident involving their yellow-boarded vehicle and a KSRTC bus near Tiptur on NH 206, reports today's Deccan Herald [NH 206 was wrongly mentioned as NH 203 in the report].

What if the accident was not the driver's fault? And even if it was, why should the owner be made to 'work' for no fault of his? I am sure there can be a more feasible solution.
About the Qualis - KSRTC Bus accident: Is the bus standing beside it a 'Sheetal'? And was it the bus involved?

I think its "SUMO Specio" not a "QUALIS".
This seems to be early morning dozzing driver of the sumo.

Snake on divider . Have to dig this one up, sounds hilarious (not the pileup, but the reason).

Looks like a Qualis to me. Look at the rear part, which is intact.

Default The No compormise Sumo - the living moron

The No compormise Sumo , this sumo rolled over to my neibhour couples who were wating for bus in a bus stop , both were very seriously injured , It happened 2 months before , My neibour uncle is still under bed rest while the aunty started walking slowly , both are retired teachers.

They had multiple injuries like multiple bone fractures on both legs , uncles back bone was seriously damaged.

The moron sumo driver was speeding unneccerily to over take some other vehicle and lost control.
