Wondering how Linea managed to get into the house and that too it looks like the vehicle is hanging.
Driver must have been on an acid trip.

Hey maybe the Linea was just looking for some covered parking space during the monsoon.
Sorry sight though. However it does not look like any damage was caused to humans.

I read that 37 died in Himachal Pradesh when a truck carrying seventy people plunged 200 feet.

How could anybody survive such a crash?

baaki, i think tbhp has a lot on horror stories..


...do let me know how it goes.
all the best!!
Thank you, Mayankk! The links are very useful!

The parts that I have to replace are: tail-light housing, driver's door and rear bumper. The parts that require tinkering/painting are: rear right-hand-side passenger door and the rear-quarter panel.

Let's hope the insurance company cooperates and I get my car back soon!

39 died day before yesterday in Mandi(Himachal Pradesh).
24 Died Yesterday Near Rohru(Himachal Pradesh).

Both the buses rolled down deep gorges.
and according to the witness of yesterday's crash,bus stopped suddenly while climbing up a steep incline and then skidded and went down

I think we should all keep the pics in this thread in our minds all the time. I know it'll make me think twice abt my NFS; honestly, Indian roads just aren't built to drive fast. What with speedbreakers wtht any warnings, animals & humans/mules just getting on the road anytime they wish to and any Tom, Dick & accelerator-pedal-pusher Harry given those truck monsters to drive. And, I'm sure it'll get only worse with the economy expanding & more trucks being given to people having intelligence hardly fit enough to drive 'em. Indian roads anyways are the most unsafe in the world.

And I'm so thankful to the new Fiats, Fords & VWs - they have given us a chance to survive. 3-4 yrs back, all we had were those puny tinboxes called Maruti & Hyundai.

Cheers to the automobile revolution in India!!!

Volvos are known to be as safe as vaults! They're quite the pioneers when it comes to safety and inventions of safety features! Not surprising there!

Saw this near yelahanka railway crossing today morning. Apparently the driver hit the divider and a vehicle both together.

Didnt quite understand how though.

Some guy oversped on the slope downward from IIT Bombay to Gandhi Nagar bridge and climbed on the service road divider, even broke the danger pole erected there with the floroscent danger markings, in the mid-night hours. The chassis, engine seemed to be pushed up and the steering pushed onto the chest. There are rumors of sad news about the driver.

Reminds me how speed breakers and speed restrictions are highly important on steep slopes.

does not look like it happened at high speed. Absence of skid marks indicate that the guy never saw the divider, probably got blinded by oncoming headlights and hit the divider?
