I was thinking of the same, the kwid guy will definitely blame the truck guy and try to make him pay for the damages. In India, majority of the people will blame bigger vehicles and support smaller vehicles in these kind of accidents.

re: Accidents in India | Pics & Videos

The Kwid driver must have been driving two wheelers before, they're the one's that squeeze through gaps like that or must have also wanted to do a side impact crash test of his Kwid, which he did and must say the car came out in flying colors but not the idiot behind the wheel all the same his impeccable kurta had no hint of the crash and drag he had been through just a few moments back: Kwid saved the day!!

While it's clearly a fault of the Kwid driver to squeeze in between two trucks, but heavy truck on the right lane is also not a correct behaviour. It seems the accident happened on top of a flyover. Being heavy vehicle, truck should have been on the left lane. Many roads/flyovers have signs asking heavy vehicles to remain on the left lane.

I think the fault is with the ferry not being secured/anchored properly. Usually I have seen such vehicle carriers being fastened to the dock/jetty. In this case though, the boat doesn't look like a proper vehicle transporter !

One should always maintain safe distance from animals while driving. The risk is higher when your on 2 wheelers. Hope the lady is safe.

Like others have said, This video should be submitted to the rescue of the lorry driver. Meanwhile the kwid driver should be booked for rash driving. His attitude after all that happened is unbelievable !

A guy who has no idea of the dimensions of the vehicle that he is driving, and its spatial position relative to other vehicles on the road, has no business having a licence in his name.

The reality of the situation on the roads is that many cyclists/slow movers/scooters occupy the left most lane to stay safe and hence the middle to right lanes are the most obstruction free paths and safer from mishaps...

This appears to be a makeshift dock/jetty and they will need to move according to change in water level of the river.

re: Accidents in India | Pics & Videos

Re the Kwid... So that's what happens if one tries that manoeuvre and fails. Beloved of bikers and cabbies, I've always hated it. Now I hate the idea even more if the vehicle behind is a large truck! And he was not unlucky, or any other defence. He was moronic. And indefensible.

About the ferry... Some will know that the one thing one must not do when boarding a boat is to get one foot on the land and one of the boat, with one's body weight bearing down. The boat moves away; you get wet.

I couldn't even begin to work out quite how the forces are working with land, boat, planks and truck, but somehow, the same thing is happening. And the string-and-poles mooring is totally not up to preventing it.

This image shows the importance of 'strapping the helmet'. She was lucky her head was not slammed anywhere. Just wearing a helmet is not enough, it can come off easily.

He did mention that it was clearly Kwid drivers fault and there are no two ways about it.

As a person who does highway runs regularly the trucks driving in the right most lane is the biggest irritant. There is no option but to weave through the trucks. They drive in the right lane even if its a 3 lane highway or empty highway.

Knowing ones cars dimension and checkin blind spots are basics of driving but many accidents do happen because of trucks hogging the right most lane and not budging. In Gujarat between Vapi and Surat I have observed that cops now station themselves on the median and snap heavy vehicles and magically they are able to stay in the middle and left lane with the same traffic of bikers and autos.

Not one bit surprised of the intensity of the crash.

I did a ride once many years ago from Bangalore to Quilandy which is in North Kerala and then onto Mangalore. That was the first time I did that stretch and it was on a bike.

Most of the stretches of highway are like a racetrack, with ups and downs, blind curves, straight stretches. Apart from the road, it had all types of vehicles on the road. What I noticed was, almost all the vehicles, especially cars and buses drove like their tail was on fire and had the headlights on. I was prepared to keep away from the buses since I knew how they drove there since I used to frequent Calicut and seen them first hand fishtailing on the highways. Most of the cars were small cars, mainly Alto's and loaded with 3-4 people and they always drove in the middle of the road at breakneck speeds on the 2 lane highway.
It was like a free for all racetrack and that was the last time I travelled on that road although I frequent Calicut-Quilandy which is much better now from what it was earlier.

For the Innova to rip off the undercarriage of a loaded truck, it would have been at some high speeds.

This unnecessary carnage happened in Kanyakumari, TN. 8 people battling for their lives and a couple of them very serious. Uncontrolled speed does kill.
