the tree doesn't look a big and so uprooting wouldn't have been much of a impossibility here.
but i feel, the innova hit the tree,and the tree was making an obstruction to traffic and was uprooted and placed right next to the car!!!
end of story...

Ive just breezed through all the posts and didn't notice anyone suggesting that its better to claim a "write off" on the car and buy a new one on safety grounds.
I'm under the impression that if the A-pillar has collapsed ,then any form of repair is still compromising the safety of the car . Am i assuming wrong Or should the poor accident victim be told of this instead of getting it repaired for 3 lacs?

Where is the poor tree at fault? It is on the side of the road and not making any obstruction. See the pic again.
Innova seems to have hit it going left to right (on the tarmac in foreground) at high speed and then pivoted around the tree in clock wise fashion. This is typicla when nose of the car at high speed hits an obstruction off-center. The rear end lifts off slightly and since the impact is off center it pivots. It was more a combination of this circular motion plus speed that knocked off the tree. Also see that the tree is fallen towards the right - opposite the suggested line of Innova's travel.
This one also does not have air bags. I hope every one was alright. From the windscreen it looks like the front passenger was not wearing seat belt. See the round impact cracks?
Unless the driver was doing some evasive action (e.g. trying to avoid a pedestrian running across the tarmac from right side of the road) it seems to be his fault. Dozing off perhaps?
