@pgsagar - Innova hit the truck and look where is the front wheel of the truck and the accent hit the bus on the side. I cannot imagine what would happen if the Accent would have hit the truck instead of the Innova.

IMO, barring all the safety devices (ABS, Airbags, Traction control, etc,) I think the Indian manufacturers build much sturdier vehicles (Metal Gauge, crumple zones, etc.,). I have seen the Boleros, Sumos, Safaris in much better shape when they have met the similar fate that of Innova you are talking about.

^^^ Ouch! Did it hit a post or something? In the first pic, it took me a while to realize that it was a Xylo. For a moment I was wondering why an Indica has been quoted as Xylo

For XYLO I guess it is like get rear ended and do a rear ending.

1st pic is definitely indica, Hints are Roof Rails, And the Standard Steel holed rims. The car is not in front of Mc Donalds etc.

As Iron Hawk mentioned they are some random different pics.

Yeah, IronH4WK has posted some random pix and the first two are definitely of an Indica. My eyes are fine :-) That Xylo looks like it's been rear-ended.

^^

I saw Indica and Xylo at the accident spot. But was surprised how an Indica could do so much of damage to a Xylo.

I think the Indica rear ended the Corolla causing it rear end another vehicle in front. Both of them are in front of Total Mall.

And Xylo is in front of the Poilce station. It might be same Xylo I saw y'day (same colour with similar damages) near Bommanahalli. Maybe it was brought to Madivala Police station for hand-over/inspection.

let me clarify the confusion.

the first picture shows the Corolla (and the Indica) and the second shows the Indica, but i don't think the Indica rear-ended the Corolla because other that the dent on the right rear the Corolla's back was fine. i think these are two separate incidents.

the 3rd and 4th picture are that of the Xylo that was being referred to in an earlier post.

Saw this KSRTC en-route Kesavadasapuram from MG College side. Over load + Poor maintenance = Disaster!

Just noticed a brand new VW Vento ( white ) meet an accident between Cauvery junction and Mekhri Citrcle Bangalore. I witnessed it around 0130 HRS and it looked like it happened in the hour as traffic police were awaiting tow truck. The car was definitely zooming at very high speed as the car has hit the nearly 3/4 foot divider and front right including the tires are smashed. Air bags too had opened. I am assuming the driver was safe. All the interiors looked brand new with the plastics still on and the new ribbon on bonnet was in tact. My assumption is that car deliver was taken not more than 6-8 hrs ago.

No pictures taken, very sorry about it. Was returning from a late night flight from delhi, my camera and mobile I had put in one of my bags and had no patience to reach for it
