Seeing the number of crashed vernas in this thread does raise a few questions about the car's safety and integrity, not to mention the handling (or the lack thereof).

No problem, I wont be going ahead and posting these.


The car in which four persons died looks like very, very horrible crash.

The car looks like Swift Dzire to me.

Guys,

That car was Hyundai Verna!

Actually i passed by the accident scene after 10 minutes as i was on the way to erode for a wedding. It was horrible. Eye witness told me that the bus fish-tailed the car which went for a 360 spin and again was hit hardly by the same bus and then it rammed in to a truck before getting crushed between the truck and the bus.

The bus driver who was to be blamed fled the scene

Not true, like they say:

"With Power comes a lot of responsibility"

This is with every aspect of life and not only cars.

An extremely nasty accident. Horrible to even think of what would be the state of passengers. When will driving sense arrive in poeple's mind and when will the professors at RTO become strict and not pass out the geniuses like the bus driver here.

Its not that only that other part of countries have seen crashed vernas. I believe that apart from the verna, the driver behind the wheel has lot to do with the accidents. This is a different story. But generally, people tend to drive very fast and they believe that Verna has Ferrari 360 like grip.
this is my observation and again its driving sense that can prevent this.

It is indeed the Verna. Look at the rear section and also the alloys and lastly the tail lamps.

Saw a badly mangled red swift on cbe > palghat road yesterday evening, left side was completely a goner and came to halt on a mile stone. A truck was parked lil ahead, with the front bumper twisted, couldnt make out how this happened, as if the truck had taken the swift sideways!

Default innova crash in angamaly

do any one have got the snaps of the innova crash near angamaly,in which one person(director of gokulam park inn) passed away.
the news papers reported that it hit the median and turned around 3 times,since the driver was not wearing seat belt he was thrown away to road.
