Default Santro had an accident

My friend was coming to my place about 90 mins ago and he called me up saying that he had an accident few hundred Meter from my place to i rush to the spot

when i reach the spot what i see is that the guy is beating my friend up and on seeing this i got so angry that i forgot everything and started beating the guy up my friend also join me

after that the crowd stopped the fight and police was called.to my luck the local SHO also came who knew me.

Latter on after this we found out the guy who was driving the auto didn't have a LD

later we reached a compromise and the auto guy was left

here are the pics of the car





PS the auto owner has agreed to get the car repaired

na bhai this wasn't a head on collision
the auto guy was coming straight and my friend was taking a turn the side cargo bay which was made more wide hit the car the santro which was just standing waiting for the auto to pass by

my friend is ok but i have a cut about 5 inch long cut on my hand because of the fight

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

Dont understand why the Santro is in such bad shape when auto had 'scratches'?

Propably, your friend's confidence may have gone down. Guess only time can bring that back.

@crazydriver
even i was shocked when i saw the damage closely
i think some part car of the car got stuck with auto and the auto just ripped it rite of

@madan80

my friend was very scared after the accident and he was shacking and he ask me to drive the car but i refused and i ask him to drive the car i thought it will help him regain confidence

i am to wondering what it is between me and rickshaw and auto guys
@benbsb29

sorry to hear about the accident dude,
if only police would step up to keep drivers without license off the road, these things would never happen.
How on earth did the auto driver thought he would get away from this?
first of all he didnt have the license and then beating the other motorist.

take care
you and your friend,

hope your friend gets back his lost confidence soon
