It did jump but not onto the other lane, but on the service road going in the same direction. Apparently, a 20 year old lady was driving the car at a high speed, and swerved to the left to save a biker who suddenly changed lanes in front of her!

It hit a banana vendor, 3 cars and 7 bikes parked on the service road next to Hindu Gymkhana.

Thankfully, no one was killed and the banana vendor got away with minor injuries. The girl came out scratch less and was abused and roughed up by the mob, before the local police intervened.

There was an accident a couple of days ago near mantralaya.
Apparently a black skoda driven by a drunk chick [heard from guys on the road] lost control, came onto the wrong side of the road and rammed a parked car.

I got pics of the 5 damaged cars.

Saw an accident on the BETL today at around 9:30AM.

Seemed like a Black Alto had hit a Logan (green meru cab) from behind.
The alto's bonnet was bent fully (inverted V shape) ant the bumbper and the radiator seemed to be damaged as well.

on the other hand the logan just had some scratches but no dents on the bumper.

Don't know whose mistake it was, but the alto driver was sitting inside while the logan driver was calling somebody.

I Couldn't take pictures. Anybody have pictures or more details of this accident?

One of the most horrifying accidents I've seen, which occurred a couple of days before 15 Aug '10, between Bangalore and Anantapur. Why? Look closer at the interior pics and you will see blood on the newspapers, seats, ac vents, windscreen, dashboard etc. This occurred when that stretch of the Bangalore - Hyderabad 4 lane highway was opened only from one side. In the night, these speeding Swifts collided head on, as they had to share on side of the highway. The Dzire drivers was wearing his seatbelt, but not the others. One person named Madhusudhan died, but I don't know if it was someone from the swift or the Dzire's passenger. The DZire's driver side had almost no blood. As always buckling up saves lives.

I have more pics but they're too gory.

That accident looks horrible! I wonder if it could be because of high-beams?

Indeed horrifying. I feel the cause would be the use of high-beams - both the drivers would have been blinded and they ran into each other.

Another Accident on the BETL today morning around the same time as yesterday(9:30)
Today must have been much more serious.
A two wheeler with damaged headlight and other front parts.
Don't know what he hit, i didn't spot an other vehicle.
The road was washed (must have been blood all over). Wish the driver has survived.
An Ambulance was standing and also some civil police had arrived at the spot.
I think BETL has claimed more lives than any other road in Bangalore.
Most of the casualties being two wheeler riders.
Its high time that the two wheelers are banned on this stretch-its safe for everybody.

Traffic had slowed down and i took 20 mins to cross this spot when the whole road takes 10 mins usually.

After all this when i crossed the spot, all the vehicles in the queue started picking up speed, the vehicle in front of me braked hard and i did the same.
Not surprisingly, a police was coming in the fast lane adjacent to the median in his splendor at 20kmph. He was heading to the accident spot i can assume. But couldn't he have done it on the right side or atleast in the slower lane.

All these years, i was blaming the authorities for bad infrastructure, but now that we have some good roads, I have realised that its the drivers who lack some discipline are the major cause for accidents.

This accident looks totally survivable with seatbelts and airbags. I would say people should be able to walk away from this if wearing proper seatbelts, airbag will also help. I guess since the bumper of both car at the same height, car's collapsible frames dissipated the energy well.

Yes. I strongly believe all the front passengers would have escaped without injuries had they buckled up.
The Dzire's driver side seatbelt was fully stretched, hence I assume(d) that the driver had worn his seatbelt. Looking at the blood on the dash and on the windscreen of the Swift, I wonder what pleasure people derive by putting their lives at stake.

The Red Swift's pedals are all mangled! Both cars must have been at a considerable speed.

If it was the high beams, any of the drivers should have atleast slowed down right?

Saw this on my way to work a few days ago, near the Kundenahalli gate (Marathalli). The driver seemed to have hit the concrete slab that holds the street lights. Sad to see a car of this caliber in this state.
