Exactly.

I have to admit that, for a minute or so, I was too close (by my own standards) to the bike in front of me. Point is... I didn't hit it! One biker did hit me, and the cab (I think) did bump both bikers.

I'm sure they would all have blamed me if I had stopped. But, I didn't think it was anything to do with me, and I did not want to distract them from their argument with each other! Being right often doesn't help

That Scorpion crash is amazing. Surprised anyone got out, let alone climbed out. Not even another vehicle to blame...

3.00 AM? And so much traffic and so many people? Where was this? Looks like a well maintained getz! Is it the 1.5 CRDi?

It's the Inner Ring road, Bangalore betwen Koramangala Sony World signal & Egipura signal [in front of HDFC bank].The Car is Hyundai Getz [ a KL-01 reg vehicle ] and it hit against the separation wall and overturned atleast 2 times before it landed upside down.

The last snap has the driver and the passenger posing.

Luckily not a scratch on either of them.

@Added_flavor - That is a CRDi and very well maintained.

That stretch of the inner ring road is quite dangerous, especially if you are heading towards domlur. The left side is elevated as compared to the right side, and if anything goes wrong, it is quite a big fall. Which is proably what happened in this case, by the looks of it.

As for the crowd, they are mostly cab drivers and probably night shift people returning from the offices on the inner ring road near Dell etc

actually, the car is on the left lane itself (coming from Koramangala towards Domlur). earlier i too thought it had jumped the divider and gone across, but when i saw the Hotel sign, i knew it was on the left lane itself. maybe the driver tried a high speed cornering, bumped here and there like a pinball, rolled over and turned turtle.

i too keep to the outer lane (and enjoy the S-curve) when passing through that stretch, but i know when to lay off the throttle!

Bad Roads + Rain = See Below.

The driver of this 800 did a sudden maneuver to avoid a pothole, and lost control, rolled over twice, before settling upside down. Afterwhich, we rolled it over. The lucky part is that the driver, came out without a single scratch.
