You read it wrong there!

Its said the owner did try to get the car out when the initial water level rose due to high tide but he wasnt successful.

At first glance, I thought the car somehow fell from the upper (old mumbai-pune highway) road. Yes, indeed weird to see a car topple on such a nice (sub-way) road.

What I heard from the bystanders is the car was speeding. They saw the woman scolding her husband (second picture) for driving fast.

The white swift and the front of the dezire are moderately damaged, but the boot of the dzire, shocked. That speaks for the quality of the sheet metal in the dzire. Seems the silver swift was doing much high speeds and if the splendor guy was stuck beteween those two, i even can't imagine his plight. He survived due to God's grace.

Hello Friends,

Another deadly accident on Mumbai - Pune Expressway claiming 5 lives:
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...w/18232829.cms

This accident happened barely 200 meters from the spot where two Marathi actors died couple of weeks back & it happened in exactly the same manner.

Businessmen Ajit Lalwani and Prakash Salve were travelling to Pune on Monday morning and Mr. Lalwani was driving the car. After crossing the Kamshet tunnel, Mr Lalwani may have lost control of the wheel, due to which the speeding car jumped the divider and crossed over to the opposite corridor and collided with the van which was going towards Mumbai.

The impact was so severe that two cars were struck to each others & two cranes had to pull them apart. The car in the photograph in above new article is mangled really badly.

Thanks,

Saw a video of a terrible accident being circulated on Facebook. The video is about an accident which probably took place today in Banashankari area of bangalore. The victim, travelling in a BMTC bus probably put his head out of the window (which is much bigger than a normal city bus elsewhere in india) while trying to wave at someone and his head got smashed against the rear of a parked lorry. Does anyone know about this incident. I cant share the link since the video is unwatchable due to the nature of the injury.

Kundapur: Car Lands into Gorge, One Killed, Four seriously injured

By Yogish D Kumbhasi, Team Mangalorean Kundapur

Kundapur: One person was killed and four were seriously injured when the car they were travelling landed into a gorge near Arate Mullikatte here on January 27

All the five are working for a Security firm in Kanakapura, Bangalore and were on a tour to visit holy places in Udupi on January 26. They had visited Tala Cauvery, Malpe and stayed overnight in Murdeshwar. On January 27, after visiting the temple in Murdeshwar, they were on their way back to Bangalore.

On reaching near Arate Mullikatte bridge, the driver trying to avoid a vehicle coming from the opposite direction, hit a milestone and the vehicle landed in a gorge. Raghu died on the spot. Four people, who were seriously injured have been admitted in the Kundapur hospital.

A case has been registered in Gangolli Police Station.

Saw an accident in the Outer Ring Road, Hyderabad near APPA in the morning at 0840. A Ford Figo smashed into the rear of a Tata Indica cab. An ambulance was there on the spot and a small kid in uniform was sitting in it. He seemed to be ok. Saw one guy sitting near the Figo. His face was red and looked swollen. More than that he looked like he was in shock. Guessed that he would have been driving the Figo. The front of the Figo was damaged and both airbags were deployed. The Indica bore the brunt of the impact. Boot was damaged and fuel tank was leaking. Rear glass was shattered. The front seat had come off. Could not see the damage inside other than this as I was passing by in another cab. Some time back came to know that a person I know was in that cab and he suffered head injury. But nothing to worry of. Could not speak to him on the details. It was a shared cab going to the airport.
Could not take pics.

It was raining in Hyderabad today evening and just as the rain started, saw one Figo with its front wheels resting inside a drain in the airport road. Then half an hour later, when I reached Gachibowli, saw live action. A Ritz was approaching the Gachibowli junction from the Outer Ring Road with its wheels locked and screeching on the wet road. I guess it skidded maybe 50 metres or more before it came to a halt. The car held its line and stopped just in time before it could hit vehicles crossing the junction. And I was, may be 15 metres away on the road waiting for my car to arrive. I could see the driver, a spectacled thin guy bracing for impact, fear written all over his face. But since nothing happened, he seemed to act cool as if he carried out a stunt. I saw a Fortuner or doing a similar thing on the same spot yesterday. Only the time was different. May be around 2015 hrs. The Fortuner did not lock its wheels. I could hear squeaking sounds intermittenly. No screeching. Just when I thought it would hit the Innova which was stopped in front, the Fortuner steered left and stopped parallely to the Innova. In the movies, this would have been a parking stunt. But it left me shocked. As I had seen the speed of the vehicle and thought that this was a sure accident. What I saw was a huge black truck like vehicle hurtling very fast and straight towards a parked Innova. I was just opening the door of my cab to alight. I was careful enough to look for vehicles before opening the door. But as soon as I opened and stepped out, I started hearing these squeaking noises and panicked. For a moment I thought it was because of me opening the door that some vehicle was braking. But then I saw this scene. Luckily all ended well.

Just read about this one:

Gujarat: Van carrying pilgrims rams into bus, 23 dead, many injured

Ahmedabad: Twenty-three people, including children and women, have been killed in an accident that took place near Patan in Gujarat late on Wednesday night. 18 other people were injured when the van they were travelling in, was hit by a Gujarat state transport bus.

Most of the victims belonged to a single family and they were all returning after offering prayers at a nearby dargah. A few of the injured are in a critical condition.

Police say the van was picking up passengers when the bus headed straight into them.
Horrible, to say the least. I wonder how fast the state transport bus must been have been going to cause such extensive damage

Really sad incident, the cause reported by a local reporter is the tyre burst, front right tyre of the open tempo (35 folks sitting/standing on the floor of the tempo) burst and it hits the oncoming transport bus. I hope we improve on our transport infra soon to avoid such horrible incidents.

Another pile up on Ymunana Expressway:
http://www.ndtv.com/article/cities/f...e-otherstories

According to news a 5 year old kid lost his life. There was another pile up in Detroit and there 2 kids lost their lives.

Both the pileups resulted in kids' deaths, why? Because we never consider belting them up seriously and this callousness results in fatalities.

Request all, to belt up your kids while driving to ensure safer journeys.

You are comparing apples and oranges. In the US it is mandatory for all passengers to be buckled in and children below a certain height to be in child seats.

I can understand your sentiment regarding the Yamuna Expressway pile up but not about the Detroit one.
