Drive a good car, and not wear seatbelts. Would BMW supply some brains with the car?

My friend said that the driver was over speeding, went over a hump and then lost control of the car. The car goes zig zag and then BANG.

That is a removable panel for towing

Stain is powdery - mud

Angry

I had a horible experience when a Bolero rammed from behind on my Getz when we had to brake suddenly when a moron ran across the highway near hyd new airport. The bolero hit me went on top of the median and both his front axles were broken , what's more annoying is all occupants were elderly women & small kids and didnt know why he drove so fast

That seems like a bad one. I believe there is a dangerous habit of following the vehicles very closely irrespective of speeds in H'bad. Even in city I am annoyed by this.

That's a quite lot of damage, such morons need good beating. I have also experienced many situations like this and once I hit a minor boy (typical chotu of tea stall) who ran across road. Fortunately he only got minor injury and got fainted.

Looking at the damage, one of those involved was on the wrong side of road. Going by the track records, in all probabilities it was the bike who would have been the culprit

Default Seen a bad one in Jubilee hills

I saw a really bad one just before road to Ramanayudu studios in J Hills. First it was an Innova with really badly crushed front being towed away. Then a truck turned across with front landed on granites on the roadside. IT seemed to have a broken front axle. I thought it was a single accident involving the truck and Innova.

The Caliber head no collision against Maruti 800 must be a high speed one considering the damage on Maruti 800 and also on Caliber.
I had Caliber of same color and my heart sank when I saw this. I hope that no body on bike is seriously injured. I dont know whose fault this is, but its quite dangerous to do high speeds in city nowadays, it seems. The outcome of these crashes are often fatal.

In case of Indigo CS accident, I think someone rear ended at a good clip. Looked like a mini BMW for initial few seconds to me.
