Again, what a scary incident and these things just happen in a flash, one moment so good and the next frame is that you have truck mowing you down. Horrific!
@adc,3 things happened in micro sec. First I saw the truck 10ft away, then I turned left and saved my family and the next thing I know was the whole vehicle turning 180 degrees and everything happened in 1 sec max.

Hey ADC nice to know that your TMT is back on road with a heart transplant.

Dont know how I missed this thread. That is a horrible accident and thanks to build quality of the Matiz that you and your family are safe and sound. The next step is to forget the incident as soon as possible and carry on. Start driving as soon as possible and do not let this accident stop you from driving.

This kind of a place is here in Pune and we can get almost every part from scrapped Matiz's. So if you do not want your Matiz (that saved your family) to go under the knife and become a donor like hundreds of others, save it. Get all the parts from other cars and rebuild it. It does not look that bad that it can not be rebuilt. C'mon it saved you and it is your dads hard earned car. Just arrange all the parts that are damaged from the scrap suppliers because believe you me, they have a lot of Matiz parts and I can assure you, you will get everything back. This car is a legend and has played an even more important part in your life. The day you sell it for scrap, it will be thin air in a matter of minutes with every intact part taken away to be sold separately and I don't think you want your Matiz to die like that. Even if it is not as reliable or refined, I am sure you will be happy even looking at it parked in your driveway, all done up.

As you can see, I am a fan of this car and I have one and I cannot sell it even if someone offers me 10 lacs on it. I won't. Yours even saved your life. Let me know and if you decide to repair it and cannot find some part, I'll help you get it from Pune.
Hi Shishir
This is a very very bad accident. Thank GOD and thank MATIZ, you and your family are in safe. Wish you and your family a speedy recovery.

@abhi1309 :-
Kindly post here the Shop name / Area in pune of scrap from where you get parts.
i think this will not attract mods. because many of us can be benifitted from this.

If you still think its against tbhp rule. then kindly PM me the address.

Might have been a very scary/intimidating experience. By the way how did you manage to take the car to the pavement? Wasn't it at an escalated level with respect to the road?

Johnny, on the highways 95% of the times the left side of the road doesn't have shoulders and for my luck it was almost 3-4 inches below the tarmac.The moment I saw the truck I turned towards footpath.It was instantaneous reaction I feel.

Lady luck was surely looking down at your family that day!

The first few pics of your car show it in showroom display condition... guess she really was your baby. Onwards and upwards my friend!

Glad to read you all are safe after this accident. There is a feeling of sadness that such a lovely matiz is so badly damaged by the truck, but then we have to thank God you all came out of this.

Thanks for asking man. Wrist is ok now. Will remove the plaster in a week.Son is doing great and slowly he has forgotten the incident. But whenever he sees the accident on TV he remembers it and shows how it happened.

Quite true bro, on the highways there isn't anything on the side-roads. It was your instinct combined with good driving skills, plus God's grace which saved you all. By the way any progress with the court case?
