Mangaon is my native place. I see many badly mangled accident vehicles being towed to the mangaon police station. 95% of them are accidents occuring on the deadly highway. BTW, highway widening is going on at a good speed around mangaon. May the departed souls rest in peace.

Mangaon is also my native place. Over the years I have heard and seen so many fatal accidents on same stretch of road. This is one deadly 2-way national highway with huge traffic and no road dividers. Its only now that they are building a wider road with dividers. The delay in constructing a wider and safer road is attributed to weaker & corrupt politicians in this region. Over the years there were small time parties representing this area. Later on the NCP leader emerged out but sadly he was busy in amassing personal wealth. I wonder how they get away from taking responsibility of so many lives that are lost! On the other hand the drivers are also equally responsible. Most of these accidents are head-on collisions. Vehicles try to overtake even after seeing oncoming traffic. They think they will manage to bully the oncoming traffic by their speed and/or size. The oncoming traffic is egoistic enough to not cut-down on their speed or use the shoulder to create any room. This is such a common scenario in our country!
Few years back I have lost 3 of my extended-family members at the same place. Their stand still Sumo was hit by an oncoming private bus!

Since the car has reverse sensors, I believe the driver would have noticed tanker and also the impact would not be so much.
There is yellow paint from the tanker till the middle of SX4's rear bumper which shouldn't have been there with a hit in the current position. Not sure if the vehicles collided twice

Today morning, I saw a heavy vehicle, maybe a truck or a tanker overturned in a small lane near dadar station.

I was in a bus so could not note any further details. Anyone knows about this?

Also, I didn't understand how can a vehicle overturn on such a small strech of road. It was one of those leading to Siddhivinayak temple and was too small a road for the overturning of such a big vehicle.

This happened around 11:00 today morning near my house.

A new TATA XENON Pick-up driven by the Owner rammed a divider corner and overturned. A SWIFT that was tailing it back-ended the XENON

Nobody was hurt

That area is a disaster waiting to happen. The milk vans drivers considering themselves as ambulances. They drive as they please, one way or fly over ramps doesn't make any difference to them. They park at blind corners , and come with no head lights on.

I take that road daily on my way back from work. I take extreme precaution as I reach the ramp to dairy circle.

In today's Kannada newspaper, saw this accident report.

Pics: Accidents in India-accident1.jpg
Pics: Accidents in India-accident2.jpg

It says:
"10 People Died when the Tavera they were travelling in collided head on with a Fuel tanker truck.
This happened in the early hours of the day at around 5AM.
The victims were headed to Tirupathi for a temple visit. Before visiting the temple they visited Hyderabad.
They were from different villages from Kolhapur District and had hired this Tavera for this trip. They had started on Saturday evening.
While 9 people died on the spot, 1 person died on the way to the hostpital.
The tanker driver is absconding and investigations are on"

10 people in a Tavera!! what is the maximum permitted assuming this was to be a yellow-board hired vehicle?

R.I.P. This should have been a 9+1 taxi.

It is really sad to see such accidents on the rise.
I drove back from Kalasa last evening and amongst the worst driven vehicles were hired MUVs.

The max allowed in Tavera is 6+1. However the front seat is made to accommodate two. So max 7+1. 10 means totally cramped passenger compartment.Also being villagers, you cant expect them to know to wear seatbelts or not to overload! So in an impact this kind of result is obvious!

Tavera & many other MUVs are rated 9-10 passengers as per Chevy's website for the MUV (few others from M&M & Force offer even more seating capacity). Interstate vehicles try best to comply with RTO guidelines & licencing requirements, & this Tavera needn't be an exception. I believe the accident happened because of overworked & sleepy driver.

I am telling about the consequence of not wearing seat belts.I should have made it clear.Also if you accommodate 10 then its sure that each individual cannot have a dedicated seat belt.Point in case is the font passenger seat of the tavera which is wide enough to hold 2 passengers.

I agree with your comments on the seat belt part. However, the 3+3+4 variant does offer front seat belts for 2 passengers. Moreover, the side facing 3rd row seats are the biggest cause of maximum damage to the occupants in such accidents.

Exclamation re: Pics: Accidents in India

From the pics, it seems either the result of an overtaking manoeuvre gone horribly wrong or driver dozed away. Sad. May their souls rest in peace.

The Tavera yellow-board vehicle, with front bench seat, is licensed to carry 9 passengers along with one driver...total of 10 adults (3+3+2+2).
