donna know what it is between me and auto/rickshaw guys and no we didn't agree on buying him a new auto because it was purely his fault
Hey Manik, sorry for the incidence. I am sure he will grow out of it. Its all a part of learning to drive and then facing the reckless drivers on the roads.

By the way, I have a doubt. The car has suffered damage on the driver side. How? If you visualize a vehicle taking a turn (U, right-angled) this vehicle will have its side facing the divider. Any other vehicle that hits the turning vehicle should always hit the left hand side and not the driver's side. Unless one of them was going the wrong way. So who was it?

Of course another possibility is that you are on a junction and want to cross the road and reach the other side and a vehicle going the other way (but is not on the wrong side) hits your vehicle from the driver's side. In that case your vehicle has to be protruding out on the road to take the hit. Basically it has to have crossed the STOP line.

I am saying this because considering that your friend has just started driving he might have made an error in judgement. Nothing that can not be rectified though.

I hope the same that he grows out of it.

from what i can get from looking at the car is that he was trying to make a turn and the car was standing at a angle and auto was coming from the other side the car was at a angle so the extra wide side of the auto hit area where the headlight is and the battery box hit the bumper which resulting in the bumper getting knocked of the car

and the above part which hit the car took the light and the fender damaging the hood in the process

the wall on which the fender is placed was bend badly in the accident

and i totally agree with you zappo i to think my friend was also at fault as he had just started driving but most of the people on the scene said the auto guy was at the fault
