It has nothing much to do with the car. You got lucky.
The accident was not too dangerous - end of story.

The so called "strong body" threads and belief of such kind is deceptive.
If the body was "strong" you would have been dead.

Hey Dippy,
i resent that, i dont seem to think so. Its the stupid in the head attitude.
I agree that most people doing stupid things on wheels are young but they are stupid in the head too. There are young people who know their limitations. And also its not only young people who do stupid things, ive seen people of all ages doing idiocy on the roads.
(P.S. - Dont mean any disrespect to you, just my point of view )

Anyways, back to topic, with everyone here. It was lady luck on your side and not the Lancer. Any accident, no matter which car, even a Volvo for crying out loud, can end in disaster no matter how much safety it has. Yes, the safety does lower a risk a bit. But thats all.

Misplaced compliment. Thank Mitsubishi engineers for Lancer's body quality. As far the accident is concerned, just thank your luck.

Why should God stick glass pieces on one's forehead to tell something?

Reminds me of this incident though its OT, couple of months back had been to friends wedding(Puttur, Mangalore)

My friends friend who is a local was guiding us in his bike to the wedding hall, i was following him in my car and could see him take too many chances ....when i pointed out to my friend he justified his actions telling that he is a good rider. later when i met him told him subtly that not to take chances..

A month later i came to know that guy got killed in an accident:( don't know if it was because of the recklessness or was he unlucky??

Can just say that if one has to showoff/prove something let him/her do it on the tracks but not on the road...

I hope the thread starter doesn't feel so good about the Mitsubishi Lancer now since he knows it was luck that they did suffer anything.
I hope God sticks some glass pieces while they are not driving to kick start ones brain.

Reading this post and the other recent wacko post by Pancham gives me the jitters when I think about taking my car out, or even letting my wife or my parents out on their 2-wheelers on namma Bengaluru roads.

What is the whole point riding safe and wearing helmets and things like that when some moron driving at 100+ speeds can mow you down in an instant. Scary to say the least.
