The chassis itself got damaged severly.
Really funny. Staright out of comic books or cartoon shows. Just shows howmuch damage 1 silly mistake can make

Probably, thus creating an inherently weak and dangerous vehicle just ready to feature in another accident report

Hit the kerb and flipped over while swerving to avoid the dog. No major injury to anyone.

Spotted this wreck last night at the corner of MG road-GGN-FBD/Golf course road connectivity road. At first I couln't recognise the car. On closer inspection, realised it's a Vento. This corner is a high speed left from MG road to the GGN-FBD connectivity road.

I saw this fairly late at night and hence no idea on how it happened and what happened to the occupants. Looks like the driver took the turn hard and went over the divider and turned turtle. Front airbags deployed and looks like there were at least two occupants (driver + front passenger).

So you wanted to see the left side of the car? Your wish is my command!

Thanks! The fragments lying out are parts of the left fender I suppose, but their patterns strikingly resemble those of floor mats..

Also there are some bits seen on the roof at the rear, probably some parts of the interior upholstery. With NCAP rating 5 star, I guess the car must have done really well to protect the occupants.

Woah, that looks like quite a roll over. It's reached some way off from the left turn on the opposite side.
I had posted a picture of an overturned corolla altis some pages back in the exact same spot!! This road is turning out to be quite an accident spot at night, when traffic is less and the lights are on blinkers. Especially after the road has been resurfaced!

The Endeavour belonged to a doctor who handed over the steering wheel after he arrived at his destination. The driver apparently was a temporary replacement of his permanent driver who had no experience whatsoever driving automatics. I wonder how people hand over the keys of their vehicles costing lakhs and crores to some person whom they barely know and care about. I don't even hand over the keys of my humble Ritz to the valets guys and prefer parking myself.

Are you referring to the lights at the intersection where the road from Faridabad intersects the road coming from the marble market and going towards sector 51 ?

The accident spot here is in front of the Pullman hotel. This is the left hander between the marble market and the IOC Sikandarpur pump. Some people see the turn very late and tend to overshoot in to the median others zoom in at triple digit+ speeds and are taken by surprise as the curve just tightens up on them before straightening up. Quite a few are aided in their flight with inputs from the vend that has opened up in the recent past close to the border as one enters HR.

Yes, I was speaking about the entire road. The road which connects mg road to the golf course road. It starts where this vento toppled and connects to the golf course road near Dlf central park. It has its fair share of sweeping turns and even a 90 degree turn and a 4 way intersection. I use this road almost everyday. I see a car or two lying very frequently early mornings or late at night.

Saw two accidents today morning on my way to office.
The first one was just after the Agara fly-over. An Indigo (yellow board) banged into the back of a truck carrying steel rods. The left side of the car was badly smashed. Don't know further details.
The second one was opposite to Vrindavan Tech Village. An Indica (yello board) was hit by a truck coming on the high speed lane, in the opposite direction . Seems like the truck guy was trying to save some 500m. Instead of going under the fly-over and taking a turn, he decided to cut across on-coming traffic to enter the service road on the opposite side. I could not click pictures as it was getting crowded by the minute.
