He put in danger your life as well as your family's just due to his stupid overtaking stunt.

Glad to know that you all escaped and are doing well.
Really one look at the matiz and not one would doubt that any one would escape out alive.

Hats off to your 10 year old beauty for saving your life as well as your loved ones.

Hope to catch up with you this sunday and get to know the details of this accident.
ya Alter even I also felt the same,but I will catch him in the court.Ya we will catch up this sunday.

Thats one horrific accident & Thanks to God no major/serious injuries. You should thank God for your & your families safety.

I think the 10 year old angel did her part to save you.

BTW, please ensure that you follow up get such errant drivers to the book.

This is a major accident. The Matiz seems to be completely demolished, but has done a good job, saving its occupants lives.

Your wife and child are very very lucky to escape with scratches. You being closest to the truck are also lucky to escape with fractures only!

It's in times like these that one really truly believes in someone up there protecting this children and you are proof of it.

No doubt the evasive action you took saved all your lives and kudos to you for having that presence of mind and quick reactions.

I hope all of you recover soon from your physical injuries and mental shock!

Thanks gozmi.Matiz has saved all the occupants.Good part is I took the hit rather than allowing my wife/kid to come infront of the lorry. Somehow I managed within milliseconds.

Exactly the same feeling i got when i saw the pics and read thru the incident. These brutes will never understand that they are playing with other people's lives when they are trying out their stupid overtaking stunts on the highways at high speeds.

Wishing you a speedy recovery from the broken wrist and like you said you are very lucky every one was safe with minor hurts. Also thank your stars that you did not break any ribs due to the impact of the steering wheel!!

All the best and again, thank your lucky stars!! You have already visited your place of worship from your earlier posts. So put this incident behind you, come out of it and get back to your driving days. Hope to see you back in action and many more safe miles on the highway!!

P.S - Please ensure as and when your time and health permits that the lorry driver does not escape with a tap on the wrist. Drag the owner to the court as well for hiring such an errant driver and do not let them off easily.

Good to know that you and your family members are safe and survived with minor injuries only.
A narrow escape indeed.
BTW its the best example of give and take relationship where, because the car was cared a lot, in turn she did the same for you and your family by taking the impact over itself and leaving your loved ones unhurt (as compared to the scale of impact) Just another view point.

Hi Shishir. Its great to see that everything was fine even after such kind of an accident.
Thanks for sharing also. Such sharings are basically eye openers for everyone, to realize the importance of safety features in cars as well as safe driving.
Cheers!

Lucky you. Get well soon.

Is Matiz parts still available in the market? or the car has to scrapped?
