Default Mangalore Crash

Hey Guys,

I got these photos from a friend of mine who took them on the way from Mangalore to Kerala.
Apparently the driver was doing excess of 200kmph when this happend. He was overtaking a series of vehicles on a bridge when he lost control and rammed into the beam of the bridge. The Driver/ Owner is still alive and injuries are limited to broken ribs.
May be someone from mangalore can add inputs to this.

The Vehicle is still on temporary registration if you notice.

One word "Ouch" !
Doing High speeds on a 2 Tonne + Suv plus the High Center of Gravity = Recipe for disaster(unless of course you are driving a Cayenne).

I do not think that Range Rover is a disaster. Am sure its not a X6 or a Cayenne on highways but is it that bad?? I doubt.

Depends a lot more on driver. Doing in excess of 200kmph on our roads in any vehicle could had led to this. IMO driver is lot more to be blamed than the vehicle in this case here.

Regards.

Rangies were never performance oriented so high speed maneuvers are a big no no , as is the case with almost all SUV's.

Clearly The Driver Did had no idea about the Limitations of his car.

That is not what vinaydas said: you have to read his entire equation.

Mind you, this does not appear to be any sort of SUV stability problem here, just a complete moron who would probably have done the same thing (at even greater speed?) in a low-slung Porsche

I wish that the pain in this guy's ribs might prompt him to get some driving lessons!

I understand what he said. And what I said was simply that I doubt that Rangie is a recipe for disaster. Yes I understand that the equation you are talking about involves many other SUVs but somehow its hard to believe that a RR can be one of them.

It really hurts to see a new vehicle being abused this way. Just a few questions here: Since the vehicle is unregistered yet, what happens about the insurance? I mean, does the insurance company have to pay the amount to the driver or they are not obliged to pay any amount to the driver? Does the registration have to do anything with the insurance? And is there any chance of repairing it, or is it going to be declared as totaled?

Insurance should come into play here.
And that looks like a total loss to me. Not sure though.

That has to be a total loss. Looking at this picture, even though at crazy high speeds this is one of the roughest SUV's out there and has become crumpled metal.
Another beauty wasted. Sad part is as it is a new vehicle, insurance pays total cost (no depreciation) and the owner will probably get a new one without blinking an eyelid.

^^Amazing ain't it? Any vehicle performance based or not, if it can save the life of its rash owners is totally worth the money spent. Thats a bad crash nevertheless.

Yes but after seeing what happened to his car after this crash, i would expect him to drive on the road and NOT FLY. If he has any intentions of living that is. Usually it would be a case of "lesson learnt" after experiencing something THIS bad. Pure speculation though. 'kuch bhi ho sakta hai !!!'. Wev got all sorts of freaks on our roads.
