I don't have any sympathy for people who, essentially, kill themselves (it's too late for sympathy anyway, and I actually have more sympathy for the drivers of other vehicles that are involved through no fault of their own), but I do feel for their families who have lost their loved ones.

Well found this on youtube this happened in Goa itself. Got to say the guys deserved this for tying out their stupid antics.

It takes a different kind of stupidity to manage something like this.

Frankly, the lack of helmets in Goa has always disconcerted me. I remember wearing whatever flimsy excuse for a helmet I got from the rental guy.
Does one really have an option? (Carrying your own helmet is kind of inconvenient)

I guess its a combination of Bike + Youth + Booze showing its effect here. What was that guy trying to do stand up on the bike on the wet road. I am sorry but it was kind of funny.

So i am not the only one who laughed at their stupidity. They are lucky to escape with some minor scratches. Idiots!

Though, have been there, done that (never drunk though). Used to drive my dad's Bajaj Super at top speed of 80kmph whenever road permitted, never mind the helmet and that the rear brakes which used to lock the rears almost instantly and fronts were weak. God! I am lucky to be living in 1 piece.

I posted two accidents. One, a Manza thrashing a pole, or vice versa and Two, Vista and Laura.

The Manza's A pillar was deformed.

None have still answered my question. Even the Laura's wipers are midway!

This was bad. Read the article as well on the link. Big crowd assembled at the spot so i guess the lorry driver must have been lynched by the mob unless he made his escape.

In the second photo above what are all those wires or ropes?

Saw this in today's TOI. There is no pic put on the net but the one published in the newspaper is scary. The Santro is totalled. Interesting point to note is that while the report says its a Delhi registered car, the car in the picture I saw has a TN-22 registered plate.

In the first pic? those are ropes from the truck! The truck was taken to the police station before the locals decided to start a camp fire out of it in the middle of the road!

As per local news sites, the truck driver was taken to the hospital but as per locals in that area, the driver ran away right after the accident.

Y'day afternoon, there was an accident on Byappanahalli-NGEF fly-over. A cyclist was lying dead on the road, in a pool of blood. Looked like a head injury. Lot of crowd and traffic cops around. I didn't stop, since my family was with me and the scene was horrible.
