My Friend tried to avoid it but in vain.
The Truck dragged the car about 200 FT n then turned turtle on top
of the car. All were screaming inside for help but nothign could be done.

Really very sad.. my heartfelt condolences. The bloody truck driver should be publicly hanged so that it sets a example for such bunch of drunk maniacs on the roads. I am sure he would not get more than two years of imprisonment. First of all what the hell is our police doing nowdays, they ought to be checking the load carrying capacity of these trucks which ideally should be 16 tonnes ( if i am not wrong ) but if they are not able to check a drunk driver then let alone checking the load capacity.. The stretch between jalandhar and pathankot is really very dangerous as you will find plenty of such maniacs with overloaded trucks and escpecially some without even a head lamp assembly.. Wonder where are country is heading too..

My condolences to the bereaved family.
We seem to be living in a caveman society. I really wish the truck driver is dealt with in a manner that is going to set an example for all time to come. A person with no respect for human life has no business living in our midst.

What a horrific accident and such an unthinkable tragedy. My heart goes out to the surviving father. Wonder how such an accident can happen at 20 kmph? Loaded lorries can easily overturn on narrow sloping roads, but nevertheless the lorry driver must have been very drunk. Not only must the driver be punished, but also the condition of the lorry should be checked and the owner suitably held accountable for any deficiencies in the brakes. etc.
Wonder if the car driver could have done anything to foresee and avert this accident. I have seen many drivers slow down to crawling pace when they see a lorry, even when there is enough space to pass the lorry. But sometimes it pays to just accelerate and zip past the guy before he has a chance to do damage. Of course I have no idea what happened in this particular instance.

Yesterday in Chennai a Young Couple in a speeding mobike fell down in the bend of the Alwarpet flyover below on to a moving car and have been admitted with serious injuries.This is the second incident on the same flyover.Goes to reflect the driving styles of two wheelers!
God save the couple!
