Unhappy Zen crash in Chennai on 13 Oct

Hi Guys, My friend's son was involved in a horrific crash in Chennai on Saturday 13 Oct. Five young people in the Zen were badly injured one of them on a ventilator. Does anyone know more details about it? My friend is in delhi and had to rush to Chennai.

it isn't dangerous as long as you dont go above 80-90kmph in a car. i have done chennai-pondicherry many times. an accident is an accident. it can happen on any road. no offense meant.

i pray for the speedy recovery of everyone involved in the accident. get well soon.

I agree, that is why it is called an accident & not an incident. BTW, no one has confirmed that it happened in ECR. Hope they all recover.

Am really overwhelmed by the response from TBHP. Like V1p3r says Hats Off to you guys. My friend's son had a posterior (backwards) discolation of the Rt hip joint and is in traction.

Hi Goandude, I wanted to write to you today to ask for an update. I see you have posted an update about your friends son. It must be painful for the child. Hope he recovers well. I also hope the other passengers in the Zen are also ok.

The ECR is a very tempting road but can be very dangerous at the same time.
