By saying what you have, you are actually encouraging and endorsing such behaviour.

Extremely unfortunate incident; may the departed souls RIP. But 150+ on that stretch at noon seems slightly impossible.
I am extremely sorry brother for blurting out something as senseless.

everyone please do accept my sincere apologies.

Yes there was, I could see a small flame still on and moreover the vehicles looked a little burnt out, may be it was quickly extinguished.

True. However this rule is always coupled with a speed limit for the vehicles plying on the main road. If the vehicles plying on main road are driven at unrestricted speeds, the right of was system at intersections (without traffic signals) can never work as the vehicle trying to cross the road might have checked and found the roads to be clear and while crossing the road finds a fast moving car headed directly towards it.

Im not stating this in reference to the incident being discussed but in reference to the right of way comment. Most other traffic rules also rely on vehicles sticking to prescribed speeds in the zone where the rule applies.

May the departed souls rest in peace.

These are daily shows near my shop on the NH6 in Raipur, people drive rashly and without any safety or concern.

saw a Honda City upside down on RTR Marg opposite Malai Mandir late last night. There was broken windscreen everywhere and police was present too. Also an ambulance had just reached the scene. No details on the occupants though.

Got up in the morning and the first page of Newspaper had this sad news:

Speeding car mows down five women in Mysore - The Times of India

If an alto could do this, imagine the speed or how uncontrolled the car would have been at the time of impact. Seems the driver fled the scene after the incident. May the souls RIP.

Not posting the Hindu link, since that is little graphic.

Really sad incident. RIP the victims of the crash including the unborn. Don't get me wrong, I ain't supporting the BMW driver but its virtually impossible for a car to do 100+ in that stretch. And does anybody think that "Motion Induced Blindness" was a bigger cause of the accident rather than over speeding?

When driving, look everywhere , then there will be no "motion-induced" blindness (yes, I saw the thread). Please, let it not become another excuse.

My take, all said and done if the indica had cartwheeled few times the BMW was definitely not travelling within the stipulated speed limit. I am absolutely sure at less than 60KMPH the damage would have been far less severe. I still blame the BMW.

Even the By Pass roads post a speed limit of 80KMPM and city roads have nothing more than 50KMPH.

Stick to the speed limits. loss is minimal.

Bud its easy to say but a sad truth that we need to accept is that almost none of us follow the speed limit. I don't :( And I myself have driven a few times through that accident spot and in no circumstances it is possible to do above 80 kmph. I'd say the Indigo driver should have been a little more vigilant because he had a pregnant woman on board. If the BMW driver is 80% responsible for the accident, I'd say 20% blame should go to the Indigo driver. But since he is no more, I wouldn't like to say a word more against him. May he RIP. I took his name because if he was a 'lil' more attentive, an unborn life wouldn't have been lost. My deepest condolences to the family of the departed.

Head-on collision between a jugaad on the wrong side of the road, and a bus on NH58 near Muradnagar. The jugaad driver survived, but received head injuries that left him with a red shirt. UP Police do not intend to make helmets mandatory for jugaad drivers in the near future.

That makes me wonder, are Jugaads legal?

"Gurgaon hit-and-run: Son of BMW owner surrenders, gets bail within hours" - Times of India.

This once again proves if you have money, you can get away even with murder. I know this isn't murder but he killed innocent people by being negligent. This is what pisses me off, when will this end?

I drove to a quaint little village on the border of Maharashtra and Karnataka last month. I was about 10 kms away from my destination when I encountered a huge queue of trucks and some smoke about a km ahead. On inquiring with truckers, I was told that a car carrier had crashed into a truck and both vehicles had caught fire. I was further informed that the highway will remain closed for the next few hours. A helpful truck driver helped me drive out through the parking lot of an adjoining dhaba and I drove past these trucks on fire.

The pictures on the other side have been clicked on the next day during my return journey.
Yes, you see it right: A truck full of burnt i10's:
