Now repair cost for that would cost at least two brand new goods carrying autorikshaw.

That looks like a really bad crash. Hope no one was hurt. What would be the repair cost for something like that? A couple of lakhs??

The crash looks nasty, the auto must most probably in the orbit by now

Exactly.If Beemer has taken this much we can think about that auto's haalath.

@Hanmust :
Looks like the airbags did not deploy.
Any idea about the speed at the time of crash?
Seeing the condition I'm guessing nothing below a 3 digit figure.
And, I'm not even contemplating the Auto's ill-fate after the accident, seeing the beemer's front end.

So bad to see the 5 in such a state. From the design of the alloys, I think its a 525d.

Preetam, the airbags had deployed. Look inside the car, on the left hand side of the dashboard.

Nope, 530d's(Baseline) too come with same rims(and 525d is phased out), the 530d Highline version is the one which gets the bigger 5 spoke rims.

Ouch !! Thats a nasty crash. I guess the expenses would be higher than a couple of lakhs.

Thank fully no big injury to anyone, but a big damage to BMW's owner.

It was on high speed it happened, almost around 140-150kmph & as usual the auto guy suddenly entered to NH from a cut road!
