Looks like a morphed image to me. Especially the way the tree sticks out from the top. There's no way this feat can be accomplished.

That was in the news that the people survived. I dont think that accidents that look horrible mean that a guy cant survive. I had an accident in US in snow while driving 60 MPH. The car flipped twice and I landed upside down in the car, my belt saved my head from crashing onto the roof. I walked away without a scratch, however from the looks of the accident, it looked really messy.

yeah ..but flipping and head on collision (as the case would be here)is different ..
fellow Bhpian flipped his vectra too walked off with a broken thumb ..which happened at 150 ks ...i am sure the damage done would have had beem much severe had it been a frontal impact at that speed especially in the absense of airbags...

I agree with aseem. when i was about 16 i was driving to mumbai from tarapur and we got double teamed by a couple of trucks. the premier padmini was totalled. i mean they found some parts 50 yards away. yet all 3 of us barely had a scratch. the worst the happened to me is the strap of my watch broke. BTW I dont think the cops will reopen a 30 year old case esp when no one was hurt so I can admit to driving underage now!

It is not a photoshop job Camry. It is almost unbelievable and that's why all leading Malayalam dailies published the photo yesterday.

One more thing...the way the car's sides and rear is damaged, it seems that it was not a flighted fall. It must have toppled from back to front. May be thats why its stuck like this.

The alcohol content in a kerala driver is higher than what is in the petrol tank so anything can happen
