Just happened to witness an accident near Khambatki tunnel, Khandala on NH4 on Friday night. It had happened just a few minutes ago and clicking pics was never on my mind. We offered to help, but there were already a few people who took charge to help the victims.

I felt so disturbed and shocked that I definitely wouldnt have wanted to click any pics of the incidents.

This brought the memory of a ghastly scene to my mind. It happened around 15 years ago in the morning around 7'o clock.. Myself and my cousin were on our way to Parur to attend a wedding and at the Edappally church in the NH we stopped my cousins Amby, and from the car I saw a Leyland Truck parked right in front of the Kurisupally and I also saw the driver of the truck praying. I suddenly noticed some white clothes below the left rear wheels of the truck, and I could not believe my eyes, that was an old lady below the wheel. The driver was totally unaware of the situation he was in.

Though I was dumbfounded I shouted from the car at the praying driver who came to know only then. The old lady had met a very tragic death.
Very sad indeed.

Even after years every time I pass through this church this gory scene comes before my eyes.

let me get this right , you mean he ran over the lady and did not realise and then went on to offer his prayers before you shouted to make him realise. Is that correct?

From your report on the other thread - the guys were almost certainly not wearing the seat belt and were probably flung out when the accident happened.

Yes exactly. For the truck driver the church was on the right side of the road and he took the vehicle close to the kurisupally, which is on the road side with a very small space in between the road. The guy while parling the truck accidentally hit the lady and an over. Probably she would have came into the wheelbase space while the truck driver was turning to park.This would not have happened if a prtective bar which is seen now a days in some trucks was mounted in thay truck.

Yes, from the accident site, it appeared that no one was wearing a seat belt. The report however says that the driver was wearing one. If all were wearing seat belts, the bunch of close friends would have survived.

this happens quite a lot - drivers wear seatbelts because fear of fine has instilled the habit. passengers do not, unless asked to, and nobody asks them.

I insist on it whenever somebody is travelling in my car and in the past week asked a friend to get out if he wasn't willing to wear it (the guy at first thought I was joking).

Saw this accident on the Eastern Express Highway, Bombay, in front of Godrej. This lorry had jack-knifed, and I am still wondering how he ended up in this position.

Did you see that "no U-turn" sign there? May be someone implementing the rules to the bone!

But seriously, it would take a LOT of effort to end up like that.

A very nice lovable HR person, attached to the training section of a company, where I also work, met with a fatal accident when the bike he was riding collided with a chauffeur driven WagonR at around 9 in the night couple of months back. He was thrown off the bike, and suffered head injury, though he was wearing a helmet. He was pronounced brought dead at a nearby private hospital.

The accident happened at a place called Thalayolaparambu where the road was dug many months back for water pipeline work and there was a big man-hole on the center of the lane with a sign board reading 'Accident prone Area'. Though he was a frequent traveler through this road. Perhaps he would have swerved to the right at the last moment noticing the obstacle and hit the car's rear right door. The car was turning towards left to a side road.

I am attaching two photos of the location taken from the direction the ill fated person was riding his bike.

The victim was a very good person always seen with a smile. May his soul RIP.

The road continues to remain in the same condition even today.

It is apathy that still the authorities concerned have not opened their forcibly kept shut eyes

It seems A/B pillars received significant impact. These are bent inwards.

Car should have hit some other object after collision with rickshaw.

yes true, but the damage looks too less to cause death for 4 persons. May be they didn't wear seat belts

Those who died were traveling in the auto, not in Nano.
