O man that was big. The front part of the monocoque is twisted. Thats bad. Anyways make sure insurance does cover any other driver.
I just renewed mine but didnt go for that as noone else drives my car but me.
Your engine bay is pretty badly smashed.

Hope everything works out fine and your car's back on the road ASAP.

check whether your insurance will pay for the damaged wall and submit AAI documentation accordingly

what type of policy is it? what does it cover. is it 3rd party comprehensive?
If you have al the insurance papers it should be mentioned there what all it covers.
for example in my case the ICE is covered too.

I'll have to see the insurance papers, but i do know the car's got 'full insurance' so i guess that covers everything

Thank your stars that everyone is safe.

Learn 2 lessons from here on -
1. Drive safe please. You just have one life, and so do others.
2. Self-driven car is better than having friend(s) driving it.

Hope you get a new Cedia soon ! Chill now. Everything would be ok.
These experiences make one stronger.
Treat this incidence as a message and acknowledge God for taking care of you.

you bad boy..... underage driving.....

Anyway glad to see that all of you are ok and nothing happened......

I think the Lancer being a good handling car didnt overturn. If it was a taller car, there would have been high chances of that happening.

And OMG !! Look at the wall !!

If you hit the wall with that much force, it is a miracle, you got away with just a few bruises....

You guys got very, very lucky.

Do some basic fix-ups on your car and sell it ASAP. It's not going to be worth keeping after this.

Just had a look at the pics,just look at that concrete wall to understand the force at the time of imapct .


As pointed out earlier you will have to be extra careful during the repairs due to the structural damage your car has suffered.

We were thinking the same thing.... And i don't feel like keeping it either. It will never be or feel the same to have this car.

karthik, I't's a relief you folks are ok, and nobody else is hurt. I saw the pics. I'm so sorry about the car, man. She's really gone. You folks should thank your stars for your luck (and for the sense to have used seatbelts).

Offtopic:

Taking corners at 100 kmph[especially within city limits] aint recommended on our Indian roads no matter what car you are driving you never know what lies ahead[like a truck parked in the middle of the road].

Very true....!!!!

But sometimes the car u drive intimidates u to drive like that........

Also i feel its easy to avoid something like a truck or any car on road rather than some human crossing a road without any sense where your anticipation can go wrong most of the times..........

That's one wrecked Lancer, karthik247.

Sorry about your loss. And a turn at 100kph ain't exactly the brightest of ideas, nor is giving your car to a friend...
