Arrow my 2004 zen totaled !!!

hey guys i regret telling you that my 2004 zen lxi got totaled on the 29th of december 2005 .
well the story goes like this!! i and a friend were driving down to noida from my house (sunder nagar) at around 3 am to meet this friend well all was good and i was cruising alog the empty way via nizamuddin untill i took a left from the ashram crossing towards the dnd well aout 100 meters after the turn we were approaching this truck on the extreme left lane as we were in the extreme right lane so continued to cruise along at our 80-90 kmph speed when suddenly the truck decided to turn right and came dead in front of us sideways (that is his right side facing us diagonally) we tried to brake but the car skidded towards the right and on turning the steering to the left to avoid hitting the railing on the right it skidded into the side of the truck just ahead of the rear wheel of the truck and dont know what all happened as our car got tossed around spinning crazily !!
well even before we realised what had happened the truck was gone we got of the car and ........
all i can say ia i thank my stars both of us came out unhurt!!
thanks to the seatbelts !!!!
remember seatbelts is a must not because its a law but because it saves lives just like it saved ours!!!

Good that you guys were unhurt. But this really makes me wild. That bloody truck was the cause of the accident and he just drove off. What if the occupants were seriously injured? His help could have saved lives, if the occupants injuries were life threatening. Why are Indians so insensitive and callous towards fellow human beings?

P.S. When I click on those pics, I am taken to the imageshack home page.

Speed, Feel sorry about your car dude. Nothing is more precious than life and thank god you came out unhurt.

Amit this could be one of the reasons why the truck driver fled the scene -->

I feel so sad to hear that... I know what it means when your car is hurt. But this is bloody murder! I could throttle that trucker if I could lay my hands on him... the b**tard ran away... eh!

Thank god you were wearing the seatbelts! Can your car be repaired or is it a complete write-off case?

I feel sorry for your car. On the other hand, I am glad that both you and your friend came out of this accident unscathed. I am glad that you have taken the initiative to suggest to all members about the importance of seat belts.

A very similar thing had happened to my brother-in-law and his friend in his friend's santro and the vehicle had to be totalled. Both of them escaped with some ordinary bruises, thanks again to the seat belts they were wearing.

Damn! Glad you walked away from that!

2005 has been a bad year for many of us it would seem! And all the accidents were caused by crazy truck of taxi drivers taking illegal turns without looking.

Lets hope 2006 is a better year!
