Demo cars cant run without plates since these are required to be registered.

Even prior to registration, Trade plate or temp registration number is required.

Geez!!!!
That,sir, is colossal.
Is that doorframe carrying indications of an extraction attempt?
seems to be, as the major impact is on the other side.
bad way to go, man.

This is horrific No wonder 3 people lost their lives. RIP. Looking at the condition they did not have a chance. So was this overtaking gone wrong?

One of my uncle's acquaint who was a well known politician also lost his life in the same accident. He was driving and the driver who escaped was in the passenger seat. May the souls rest in peace.

spotted this just after the KR Puram bridge (the ram leading to Marthahalli). looks like a overtaking gone wrong.

Seems like the guy couldn't decide whether he wanted to be on the road on the left side or on the flyover and ended up in the middle .

Most dividers in Bangalore are this way .At nights especially in rains ,its very tricky .Guess this driver was caught the same way .

There is one more divider like this on the Old HAL Airport road just before the Marthahalli flyover .

I've seen atleast two more indicabs crashed at exactly the same place in the past year and a half. Why is it always an indicab and not something else!

From the rims, its 100% a maruti and looking at the ground clearance, I would place my bet on an Alto.

It indeed is an Alto. The rims, LHS rear window and the hatch door confirm this.
