Exactly. They had no belts on. (O top it Kartik must have been engrossed in the laptop which was the only casuality of the accident.
Thank heavens both karan and kartik have minor injuries.
The car is safe with only minor bruises as viper has specified.
Someone mentioned that the car crashed into a stationary truck...well thats not true, the truck was moving and as most trucks do, appeared out of nowhere.
Chalo, everyones safe and ok.

Hi Rush,

Yes and as Gogi mentioned they were not wearing seat belts which caused the bruises. Karthik probably fractured his hand as he had a sharp impact on the dash with his wrist which is a delicate area.

They were all back in action working on cars within 2 hours of completing the medical formalities.

I'm surprised that both weren't wearing seatbelts though..coz KAran seems to be more than responsible when he drives, I've seen on the wheel a million times and never once has he missed his seatbelt.. What a bad coincidence. Anyways since they are fine lets end this.
