Wonder if they dragged it midair the entire way till garage !!
Doesn't really matter how they lift it as this car is def a total loss. It probably went straight to the scrap yard.

Anyone know if the driver made it ?

I see the side airbag deployed ,but not the front one. Maybe he made it ,although they are notorious for not fastening the seatbelt,so who knows ?

Yes the driver made it but sadly one of his legs didnt ! His leg got crushed and had to be amputated if i remember it correctly. There was another co-passenger who made it out safely.

Unhappy re: Supercar & Import Crashes in India

A dark grey Bentley crashed few minutes back(some other vehicle crashed into the rear right of Bentley) just after CGO complex entry (next to Barapullah elevated road).

Couldn't snap pics since I was driving.

Came across this Mercedes Benz ML350 CDI crash.
Thankfully all 5 in the car came out scratch-less.

Wont comment on the speed or anything, but this is a direct result of not having proper bars on trucks to prevent cars from ending up exactly like this.

Afaik this accident took place at night due to the truck not having taillights.

This could also be a result of 'tailgating'.

Most drivers love to do that here .

This is probably one of those cases where being in an SUV is actually safer. See below:

scratchless? Looks like that windscreen has been heavily impacted from the inside

No excuse for not having bars, but...

The bump in the windscreen seems to be due to the bonnet crumpling and pushing against the frame. Does not look to be due to someone banging their head against it (due to being not belted), which is what I think you mean by "impacted from inside".

Looks like a mumbai car, seems it will get done with a bonnet replacement.

Ah, yes, I see what you mean. I'm glad it wasn't caused by heads.
