Was it dark-blue colour in the Polo? If so then that Polo must be very new as the blue colour is just recently introduced in the Polo.

Yeah. I wouldn't believe that too, till I heard the people around the scene repeatedly say about it. No need to mention all who stopped by were equally surprised at this escape. The bus hit the car at the B-pillar just missing the driver.

Read on TOI about a speeding Mercedes knocking down 5 people in Versova, 2 of whom are critical. Here's the link:

The occupants had a lucky day. Reminds me of an accident that happened many years ago in Kozhikkode/Kannur, when two buses crashed in a similar fashion. One of them was racing with another bus, and in an attempt to get back onto the lane, cut sharply, only to be hit somewhere in the middle by the oncoming bus. The bus was intact till the rear axle, but the portion beyond the rear axle was seen lying at a distance away from the spot. Quite a few people lost their lives. Scary

By the way, is it really NH-49, or NH-47? The car is a Maruti 1000 and not an Esteem

got some information on this incident.

apparently, the Swift was coming from the Baiyyappanahalli side (going towards CMR college) and the blue car (a Punto according to my neighbour) was trying to join the main road from one of the by-lanes.

the Swift t-boned the blue car (Punto/Polo) on its left side, thereby there were not grievous injuries to the driver. for the Swift fella, the airbags deployed and saved his sorry bum; but not for long. my neighbour tells me that there was a mob of about 70-80 people (i'm thinking exaggerated) who were beating up the driver (the Swift fella i'm guessing).

me thinks the fault lies with both drivers - the blue car fella should have stopped > looked > proceeded and the Swift fella shouldn't have been racing on public roads. didn't see either car on the spot on my way back home.

btw, it seems the accident happened between 9:45am and 10:00am - just 15mins after i passed through that same spot!

My bad. It's an M1000, not esteem.

It was on NH-49, the Kochi-Madhura National Highway (Now called the 'Dhanushkodi' highway, when it was extended from Madhura to Dhanushkodi).

To add to the surprise, the accident occurred at the centre of the longest stretch( yeah, I mean it. Perfect straight line for half a kilometre at least) in the highway between Kolenchery and Tripunithura.

Hard to believe that someone survived this horrific crash!

This guy has used up all the good karma which he has earned. Must really thank his lucky stars. Really cannot imagine how they came through this crash with no injuries. Thank god there was no one in the back seat

With 6 lane construction going on in Hosur-Krishnagiri stretch, the number of accidents are on the rise in this stretch. For now, it is better to drive with more caution in this stretch. Drive with an eye out for deviations because in certain locations, the markings are not proper and not very visible after dark. Also, its better to avoid the left most lane(newly laid road) as they are ending abruptly in some of the places.

Unhappy re: Pics: Accidents in India

So this is what happened today in a multi car pile up. My dad was driving and he had to apply sudden brakes. I wish my car had ABS . Anyway, now the car will be shifted to the A** tomorrow. As far as i can see , the bonnet, bumper are affected. Lets hope the HID's installed work. Will update you guys tomorrow. And lastly any idea about the estimate ? My dad is a little shaken up so didnt ask him other details. I never thought my car would make it to this thread !!

It doesn't look too badly damaged. Bonnet and bumper mostly by looks of it. Rest of the car seems fine at first glance. Looks minor enough that there shouldn't be damage to the chassis.

If you do a tinkering job low 5 digits, I am guessing (at FNG even high 4 digits). Replacing the parts will get more expensive. Am guessing insurance will cover quite a bit of it, so see if they will replace or repair.

A sedan sighted by me on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, a few days back. Going by the appearance, the accident might have occurred a few days ago.

Also I could sight a burnt Mahindra Scorpio (not clicked) to the left of the road, while moving to Pune- the same direction in which this sedan was seen.

Gosh ! This is quite scary. It is a Type 1 Esteem and my guess is the car should at least be 15+ years old (given that the facelifted version was launched in Dec 1997 if my memory serves right). From the pics, there is hardly any tread left on the tyres !
