Default That unlucky night

I love my car, but now it's all screwed up.

I can not write much as i can not use my right hand.

on 18th sep 2009 it was raining cats and dogs in blore. Suddenly idea came to my mind lets go somewhere. called up friends and 2 of them agreed. place was decided by 12Am and it's goa.

By 12:30 we left Blore and it was raining continuously. I was mainitaining good speed and Tyre grip was pretty good. In good roads i was doing around 130-140 with occassional 160KPH.

But sometime you run out of luck and that's what happened, the unexpected

Past midnight, it was raining cats and dogs, and you were doing 130-140 with occasional bursts of 160 kph? No condolences.

From the picture it seems there was no frontal or rear impact. Either something hit them from the sides or the car skidded to bang some railing.

110 - 160 KMPH on Indian Roads.
You thank your lucky stars man.

I have driven for 20 yrs but
doing doing >110KMPH on these
roads is a sure ticket for disaster.
How can ONE not see this ? Hope you
care enough about yourself in
future.
