Hey KP,

Thank god you and family are Ok and escaped with minor injuries. That car sure looks in a bad shape. Please do insist on all passengers wearing seatbelts next time around though will minimise injuries if any.

Take care man.

I'm glad the car did its job - on the face of it would not have credited the Alto with good protection but I guess I was wrong. Yeah, seatbelts are an absolute must.

Sorry about the accident, kpzen. That stretch of road at Thonnakkal is actually hightly accident prone. There are yellow lines on that stretch and more than one time cops have caught me for overtaking, albeit at low speeds. Guess your experience will be a lesson to me.

Relieved to hear that you and family are ok. Buses in India have ceased to be public transport and have transformed into giant killer missiles with a mind of their own.

The cops acted funny when i went to get the car released from their custody....They asked me to write it was a bike instead of the amby in the report for NOC ...

Glad that you and your kin came out of this one safely and relatively unharmed.
I tried to do that but tyres locked up n it went straight towards the bus....

Looks like a situation tailor-made for ABS, which is supposed to help you steer out of trouble while braking hard. Although I must admit that being an old-timer, I am a skeptic with respect to ABS.

Glad there were no serious injuries and every one traveling with you is safe. Was that a single lane road (one in each direction) ? This kind of highways are very dangerous, I almost came under an oncoming bus once. The bus just kept coming on in my lane in an attempt to pass other buses and trucks and I had no other option than to go off roading. Otherwise it would have been a collision @ at least 80 + 80 KMPH.

Hope your aunt is recovering well.

Sorry to hear about your incident KP, hope everyone recovers soon. Also ensure that the front seat occupant in your car ALWAYS wears a seatbelt.

Good luck!

Hey kpzen, the two pics are telltale. Thank god everyone is now better.
Looking at the the driver side of the car I can just say, kpzen you thank those seatbelts man. Take care and I hope lessons are learnt by all who read about this mishap.
Once again, the biggest lesson of all, wear those seatbelts.
