I hope whoever was inside survived; also the wheels of the car are of the wrong offset which will make the car under steer for sure. The driver surely has to be under the Influence to crash this way.

Satyam.

Woh this is the same yellow RS which i was referring too in autopsyche's M3 thread when he was putting these alloys. I had seen those mags on this very car. That guy did drive like a maniac the few times that i did see him, once had a small race with him in my accord it was during day time traffic and he sneezed into every gap he could find to try and get ahead of me.

A very disturbing and sad site from those pics. Was as bad as the Worli - Ford Ikon accident.....no actually any accident is bad, but in this case i hope no one has had serious injuries. Were people outside (on the road/footpath) injured or hurt??? Why dont these guys understand that when they speed like such they put thier own, their passengers as well as the lives of others on the road in danger.

Drive safe guys!!!

->P

:WTF: so u blaming the tyres ?? atleast i cant see anything in this accident that could be caused by tyres !! maybe im missing something .

IMO - this happened due to an out of control maniac probably under the influence of alchohol - not because of the car , brakes , tyres etc.

its happened purely because of driver misjudgement

cheers

sad, v sad,

they say the single largest cause of road accidents worldwide is - you got it, excess speed!

so that's it guys, however good your car is - you can't cheat the laws of physics - you can't do a 90deg turn at 160kmph and you can't stop from 160 to 0 in 100ms!

drive fast only when you'r sure! that is, you can see for miles ahead - never overstep the braking power of the car...

any news on the guys inside??

The guys has got away with just a few scratches. I guess he has to thank the build quality of the Skoda for that and his starts too
