This has already been posted on this thread and yes, the driver walked away without a scratch.

distracted, maybe. it could also be a case of tyre burst. if you notice the divider wall, it isn't too tall, just maybe 1ft. also, if you stop the frame at 0:34sec, you'll notice the Palio is almost fully inside the divider area with the backside facing the front. there is a light post there, which it could have made contact with. however, this seems unlikely as the light post doesn't seem to have any damage and is still standing.

so two possibilities:
1. got distracted > hits the 1ft divider wall > tyre bursts and jams against a open space in the divider wall > flips horizontally > flips vertically.

2. RHS front tyre bursts (and right front side loses height by few inches) > nose dives and hits the 1ft wall > flips horizontally > flips vertically

however, in both cases, there would have been something else on the divider area (could have been a short pillar of some sort) that made the car flip horizontally.

The front bumper had a major scratch. Car is just 2 days old.
Parking guy told that a car just hit and ran away leaving that scratch.
Tires say that the car is more than 2 days old

Saw this at Apsara Border, Ghaziabad side.

Seemed like this was banged from behind by some Truck (this area is truckers area, as its just the border of Delhi)

This is not recent. This was on Tbhp long time back. Some alert member also pointed out that the crash had to do something with the 3 lane road suddenly turning into a 2 lane road + the filming distraction.

Next, the baleno seems it had a sleep deprived driver.

Sad too see a Baleno, that too a taxi in such bad state.
Is it a total loss?
The cabin (ignoring the rear window) seems to be intact.
No injuries to the driver if he had been wearing his seatbelt, I guess.

This happened today morning in front of my office on the Hosur road.
The auto, all of a sudden veered into the service lane from the highway as usual without any signal. The Swift tailing closely did not have the time to brake and then rammed on to the auto.

Yes, the auto was probably driving like a <bleep> idiot. BUT, the Swift driver is the bigger idiot for tailgating.

^^ Exactly my thoughts. One needs to be extra vigilent once these guys are seen on the road.

What happened? The truck was delivering the flyover and the load started slipping off? Or did he take a turn too fast?

Today Morning @8:30AM.
Spotted a swift rear-end an alto, on the road from Kundalahalli to ITPL.
It looked like the Swift reacted late and rear-ended Alto, only to be bumped by an Eicher on the LHS.
