Although this is a strong contender for the "official guess the car thread", I thought putting it here would be more apt:

Driving to work the other day in the morning i saw this car on the divider at worli sea face. Must have happened a few minutes ago, since people were getting outta of the car.
The strange part was that nothing was broken... as in the windows or windshield, neither the lights! A small dent on the front bumper that's all!

Default and here's stupidity in paradise

Stupid suicidal idiot i'd say. Pretty talented to trash the car when there's NO road at all.

here was heroism of an i10 being saved by crumple zones (see second pic). The Sumo was as left as anyone could get on a curve. Around Bilaspur or thereabouts.

A few minutes later, an empty truck braked hard for a cow, and this picture happened. The truck didn't even stop!

What kind of a driver was driving the i10, it seems the i10 guy did not want to let Sumo go anywhere. Is that a road curve as well ?

I Happened to see this Indica today.the Indica was right behind us when we heard this huge screeching of tyres.and as we look behind we see this.
Apparently a broken suspension arm.I find it surprising why so many Indica's end up with this.

yes, the road was curving to the left, and the i10 was WAY out of his lane. What was shocking was that it was a local HP31 (Sundernagar) car only. There was no way the Sumo could've avoided him!

Interestingly, both sides' had worn seatbelts - unlike the NH3 Safari heroes in the prev post!

That was no doubt an exquisite picture of a car which seems to have flown off the tarmac

BTW - In the same pic I notice that your right ORVM is cracked. If it indeed is, then polite request to you - please get it fixed ASAP mate. We at T-BHP believe in safe driving and also keeping our vehicles in near-perfect conditions to avoid any kind of mishaps
