Oh my god! That's really bad.
Accidents happen and what can we do. Brothers! Let's pray that the unlucky souls rest in peace and let's also try and be more responsible on the roads.

BTW, there were some road construction happening at BKC. Is it some reason for this accident? The authorities should hurry up with the work or put some strict measurement to control speed in those areas.

Default Shame!

This is why 15-20 year old designed Marutis should not be sold or bought. They have obsolete safety standards IF any, and very little sheet metal to protect their riders

Special emphasis on 800s, Zens, Altos etc. IF you do own them and drive them like the go carts they are, this is bound to happen.

My sympathies with the drivers family.

Default Bad Crash

It must be a very nasty crash. May the Soul of the dead Rest In Peace.



Now regarding the accident, it must have been very high speed into an almost rigid thing.

its a sad news.Haven't heard about a zen ripped apart before.Is it the old shape or the new one?What about the other occupants?RIP for the driver.Roads are playing a pivot role in most of the accidents.Hope they clear them immediately and let this be an eye opener at the expense of a life.

Very sad to hear. RIP for the driver. Ram, with the explanation you have given, I feel there might be no chance of survival for other drivers also. The old zen does not meet to any safety standards. I was just imagining how fast the driver could have been driving and hit the lorry from behind.
