Googled, and here's what I found. Has a pic too--gruesome! http://www.mid-day.com/news/city/2003/july/58015.htm

Get a attested copy of FIR thats important for total loss claim, apart from that you will require a quotation from authorized ford service to repair the vehicle, obviously the estimate will be way higher than the insurance value its only then the insurance company will go for total loss claim, you will need to submit following documents for insurance claim
1) Copy of Insurance Policy
2) A small letter describing the way accident happened place, location any injury if any and estimate repair cost and claim for total loss.
3) A copy of rc book & driving licence
4) If the car in question was under loan & if loan is over a copy of NOC from the bank & loan closure letter.
5) A copy of FIR.

whats the value of car in your insurance note its called idv & its not necessary on market conditions, eg if insurance value is 3L the insurance company will deduct the scrap value eg say 1L & give you 2L chq & settle the claim & you can get 1L from the scrap dealer.

get all your paper work clear whatever you submit to insurance company take a attested copy of acknowledgement with date & time mentioned.this will help you later if the case gets delayed.

thank god your brother is safe,
The Jaipur highway is a death trap. Four lanes or not, you will find so many crazy truckers and RJ buses there. They change lanes without looking back, cross the road without any heed of the traffic. The most dangerous are the bullock carts coming on the wrong side.

Hey Man, thank God your cousin is safe! I can imagine braking from 120 in an Ikon at short notice, would have been tough stopping in the circumstances.......what happened to the right side by the way (I suppose he hit the truck with the left front)?

Wearing seat belts is absolutely essential but there is one more moral of the story.

No matter how good the roads are and how big the car is, never drive above 100.

Ideal speed on a very good highway would be 80-90 because highways are very prone to accidents caused by tractor trolleys , milk vans etc.

Whoa! What an unfortunate crash. By the grace of God, your relatives were saved by wearing seatbelts.

In the monsoon of 2003, happened to see the wreckage of the brown Ikon while strolling on Worli Sea Face the same evening. I remember my friendís on the spot chatter, about the poor crash safety of the Ikon compared to his Cielo with air-bags and his Contessa.
