But Look at that swift. Iam suprised! It took out a hummers wheel at that.
Imagine if that Hummer were to hit a scorpio. I think it would be a DRAW!!!

Is it really totalled, the swift I mean?
The damage is indeed quite extensive but is it beyond repair?? The impact is on the right side of the swift, so I guess, majority of the engine must be safe (no leaking fluids either). Eye witnesses can clarify more, the extent of damages.

Thank god the occupants were safe.

With the kind of damages the Swift inflicted on the Hummer, I would rather say that the Hummer got totalled instead of the Swift. The fact that the Swift took out the entire wheel of the Hummer says it all...

H2 is just a fake. Its a Chevy Tahoe with plastic surgery to make it look like an H1. Its only bought by wannabes.

Have to say that the swift survived quite a knock from the truck.

Gosh.
That looks pretty bad.

I did not expect a Hummer's wheel to be completely off.
The swift looks way too bad man.

that must be some really crappy build quality. The swift rates as pretty flimsy ( just the exteriors, not wrt structural integrity before anyone pounces on me ) in my book, so for a swift to do that , that vehicle must have been pretty puny!

Awww, come on! I think the Swift won! Atleast call it a draw,both cars are well and truly knocked out, except, the repair is probably going to be easier, quicker and cheaper with the swift
The Hummer would not last half a round with a Scorpio.

I feel that Swift Has gave a tough Competition to Hummer. Its sad to see that Hummer was comparatively more damaged than the Swift.

They were overtaking, on the Shaan Flyover.

No wonder this happened.

Glad the people in the Swift came out okay.

And going by what N_C saw near Globus, this H2 guy has a few nuts missing up there. Glad his vehicle got taken out before he took somebody out for good.

Totaled? That swift doesn't seem to be totaled. Albeit it'll cost a bit to get it back to shape but it's far from being totaled.
BTW, the swift seems to have taken a piece of hummer as a souvenir, look at the A-piller ;-). And I doubt the Hummer will ever gonna say "you are so delicate" to a swift after loosing one of it's legs, ummmmm wheel.
