@Vikram.... Darn! This is the first time I am getting to see the picture of your Palio after you told me about your accident. Glad you came out unhurt because it looks pretty bad... thank your lucky stars and to your car. I shudder to think what would have happened if the car was say a Santro.

@Vikram.... Thank your stars and offer a prayer to God that you came out unhurt from such a terrible accident. This is why they say "Jako rakhe saiyan, maar sake na koi"

Where did this happen?
This was on the infamous faridabad-gurgaon road. I have seen frequent accidents on this road. This time it was my turn!

That snap was taken by a photographer that police called. Car is lifted and put on the side in this snap. Was in the middle of road with a pile of sand on top of it, couldn't be pulled. Had to be lifted from the roof by crane.

2nd major accident in 2 years. Parents keep telling me that red is not "shubh" for me!

Thats true, if this is what happened to Palio, you can guess how other small cars would have fared!

Was this Lancer/Evo crash from a rally?? It seems like an autocross or a drag from the surroundings.

A good car getting hit!!! Ouch it really makes us all feel hurt!

Its an Evo all right. I guess it crashed into the wall at a turn by looking at the Front Left tire. Sad to see a nice car smashed up.

Ha ha! Rally scene, yeah right!
I was at this scene offering to help lift the bumper so the pit dude could jack the front up.
This was at the last Touring car c'ship at Kari in November.
It was the first corner of the first lap and this guy went into the rear right corner of the car ahead.
He mended the front and returned to the race.
Arjun Balu's Cedia was a firecracker,that day. At the C1, he banged into a late-braking evo . The oil cooler busted (from my POV) and it went from smokes to fire and a small blast in the engine bay.

I had little time to react, thankfully escaped without even a scratch! can you believe that!!
Thankfully you got out without major injuries. The photograph clearly shows it is very scary. yes you are right, its really unbelievable that you out without scratch! But then thats the great point of this incident i.e. coming out scratch less.

Clearly visible is the front grille of Palio. Any car would be finished by this accident.
