It was mentioned they were enroute to Pallikaranai. IIRC there is no median of any sort on this stretch.

Another case of underage driving wreaking havoc.
At least in this case no one else suffered due to their stupidity.

^ Car is un-recognizable.

Parents should have had to brains NOT to give a D segment car for a ride, to their minor kid.

Needless to say, overspeeding + happily unbuckled.

Shudders to think what would be the state of a two wheeler/pedestrian if they were in the path of this ill-fated car, instead of the truck!

parents might not be completely at blame here. Seems like they were misled. But maybe there should have given the driver strict instructions not to give the car to the kids and to stay buckled up!

Well, I would not give my Corolla Altis to my minor kid for a ride. I would rather offer to drop him, wherever the place is and whatever be the time.

And you seem to have misunderstood it. There is no driver involved here. These kids deceived their parents that they are going to meet their teacher at 7AM on a Sunday.

P.S: I would know that my kid is over-selling himself when he says he is gonna meet his teacher at 7AM on a sunday morning!

My bad! I missed that part. Of course, the driver would be blamed for everything! Sad.

Point to note is that the kids asked the driver to get off the vehicle!

What happened was very bad indeed, but it's possible the driver was bullied by the kids into parting with the car keys. Anyways now there is no point in blaming someone, the damage is already done and it is irreversible. The blame game will continue over the days to come, but will people ever learn something from such incidents? I don't think so, and in a few days history will repeat itself!

The occupants were enroute to Pallikaranai but the accident took place near the Medavakkam koot road bus stop where there is a median. Saw the remains of the car today morning enroute to my office and felt sad.

At nights, rash driving is a pretty common in this stretch with winding roads and sparse traffic. Last week, our auto driver met with a major accident in his auto as it was knocked off by a speeding call center Sumo but the driver himself rushed him to the hospital and saved his life.
