This is the exactly what happened here. The dzire had been tailing the Lambo for long time and driving recklessly to overtake the sports car. He tried to cut the car in right most lane and in the event misjudged the gap and speed he was carrying while doing the same. Dzire clipped the lambo's front and as an impulse the lambo driver cut left as well only to find the eeco driver wrongly overtaking from the left side.
This could've been avoided if only the cabbie wasn't to trying to race the lambo.

If this video wasn't available, then i'm sure the guy testing the lambo would be in trouble.

Dzire is clearly at fault for over taking and losing control.

Eeco is equally at fault as well, for driving in between two lanes and not maintaining a safe distance from the car ahead at such high speeds - RIP.

Apears Lambo acted out of impulse and did steer a lot to the left (would have been good had he chosen to bump into the Dzire maniac instead).

Most lucky -> Guy in the 2 wheeler on the left most lane

As usual media will blame the rich for any accidents whether it is their fault or not. In most cases, it has to be speeding mercedes, speeding audi, irresponsible ferrari driver etc. causing the accident. Clearly, if this footage was not available, Lambo driver is the prime accused in the accident. My analysis ..
1) Dzire driver is the prime reason although it is difficult to blame him entirely. Lambo car is a very short car compared to any other car on the road. It was definitely at the blind side of the Dzire vehicle. If the Dzire driver was not looking at his ORVM (many drivers still do not use ORVMs in India), then he is definitely at fault. If he was using the ORVM, but still didn't see the Lambo, then his ORVM is not properly setup. After signaling for lane change, one should always drive on for a while before changing lanes. This gives sufficient notice to rear vehicles to slow down and be alert.
2. Lambo was not at fault as the Dzire swerved directly onto his path. Not sure what his speed was. Was it trying to overtake in that lane, in which case he can also be the guilty party. Didn't look like that from the footage though.
3. Eeco also was at fault because he was too close to Lambo ... there was no distance maintained to take evasive action when the vehicle in front stop suddenly. He was also in between lanes and not maintaining lane discipline and doesn't look like he was changing lane either. Was he distracted or dozing? RIP to the driver who lost his life in this unfortunate accident.

Supercar & Import Crashes in India-imageuploadedbyteambhp1503034279.355777.jpg

This occurred last night at around 1:00AM or so, car belongs to a neighbor who lives down the street from me. Apparently it was traveling at a high rate of speed and jumped a speed breaker which resulted it hitting the structure. It's a real shame but the prospects don't look very good for this Q3.

Found these pictures of an Audi R8 on a salvage auction site. No details on how it landed up in this state. Judging by the 'Audi Driving Experience' decals on the car, it could have been a case of a customer/driver not being able to handle the car during a spirited drive. Hope everyone walked away unscathed.
