Tractor was intact, and driver was high and came out without a scratch. I even mailed it to sonalika.

Only problem was faced by the owner, he was doing truck work on agricultural permit.

Thats hilarious Nitin. Hope no one was hurt though. The driver should join the off road events to get a hang of the sport. What say headers, Arka?

Default A severe Bus accident in vadodra, gujarat

A state transport bus in sorry state(6+lac km done) plunged in a river killing 44 children and 3 adults. only four children survived. and more are missing.

They say they could have been saved, has the rescue effort started earlier. Old tire that bursted is said to be the cause of accident.

Angry

The driver reportedly lost control when the axle of the bus broke while passing by a stationery truck parked on the bridge over the Narmada canal, the lifeline of Gujarat, which had more than five metres deep water flowing in full force.

It could have been the bus driver’s fault who reportedly wanted to overtake a truck, or the vehicle’s axles giving away. Some people even say that one of the front tyres burst, leading it to lose control and plunge into the Narmada canal.

Skoda got all the shock in its front left wheel. Look for the marks in the alloy & tyre. Skoda service would tell them to change the front assembly completely. :-)
