Spotted this at the dealer's. Apparently this is a total loss.

Do you know how this happened ?
The A-pillar from left side is totally caved in. Looks like the front passengers were obviously most affected. Very high speed crash it seems.
To me it looks like either the car rolled off or went in a parked bus/truck. I mean those very high and rigid chassis truck/bus. The damaged A-pillar indicates this.

Gosh, another Endeavour! There was a fatal crash yesterday at Hyd on the Outer Ring Road. An Endy crashed head on to a bus and all 3 passengers died. My pal saw it a few minutes after the crash.

This is what i found inside Bandipur national park , i am surprised about how the car managed to collect such damaging momentum inside a national park.

seems like either driver slept off OR sudden swerve landed him in the stone embankment you see under the grass.

the passenger compartment was intact and i would have expected the people involved to be having a really tough time to get back to civilisation if this happened in the night and given that fact that this is an elephant crossing zone .

Last saturday on my way to masinagudi is when i saw this accident , before this is saw another accident involing a Tata 1210 lorry and a matador van the sad part was there was a lady jammed between the two vehicles in a rather gory state of affairs, Dead on the spot i belive both vehicle drivers had run away leaving the public to clear the mess , i reach the spot 15 minutes after the incident and the police were not yet there. The police station is almost opposite to the accident location.

He must have spotted some wild animal on the right side. Might be looking right and driving. Car drifted off the road as he wasn't watching the road and wham right into the rock just on the left side.

Regarding the Endeavour pics which i had posted, i was told upon enquiring that it had indeed rolled over at high speed. Apparently, someone or something had come in the way, and a sudden swerve resulted in this.

That apart, doesn't the Endeavour come with airbags by default? While i was checking the ruins of the truck, i didnt notice any inflated, or torn away airbags. I dont suppose anyone would have actually bothered removing them after the accident.

As for the fate of the occupants, i didnt have the courage to ask. :(
