Glad that nothing serious happened.

Check out for internal damage like the spare wheel well area and the bumper rail.
Bumper plastic is flexible so they will absorb the impact and come back to their original shape..

That Mahindra van is obviously a lot stronger than they look! I'd have expected an upside-down one to be crushed.

Please... turtle is not a verb!

Dang, this is funny.. yet not funny!

I have heard & seen a couple of videos, but these legends behind wheels scare me! I think she saw the hollywood action thriller (Salt) before she got behind the wheels.

Disclaimer: No offense there ladies, just a PJ. Hope nobody was hurt in the incident.

Burning Car

Saw a Tata Indica burning just after the TOI flyover on the western express highway going towards Andheri. Even though the car was on the side, there was a huge traffic jam bcos of folks parking all over the highway and looking at the car.
Couldnt click photos as I was on the other side and it was raining.

Came across this bolero last week. Apparently the driver in an inebriated state, tried to negotiate the turn at high speed and lost control.
No casualties though.

well,i'll also pitch in here.During my PG, i used to drive a Zen('97 LX).It was a sort of "adda" for our group, from eating, sleeping, smokes and what not.So here we were,in a dhaba in front of my college.the dhaba is at one side of a road, on the other side is where the students usually parked their vehicles.so my car is facing the wall on the other side.and parked about 2 cars parallel to it is an accent, with the driver and cook of the guy who commutes in that car.Its siesta time, we're sitting there grabbing bites between lectures.suddenly thi accent does a hard burn on the spot for about 2-3 seconds,literally leaps out of the spot,hangs a complete U, and rams into my zen's bum!!!my car does a fairly good impression of a wrecking ball, bangs into the 2 foot high barrier-sorts wall,demolishes it and goes through.on the other side, unfortunately, is a "nullah", but fortunately, there is a sturdy enough plant/semi-tree which kind of stops the car.rear 2 wheels on the surface, front two in the air, and nose against the tree!!!!all of 4-5 seconds, and its over!!!!literally,blink and you'd have missed it!!meantime, the accent is still attempting to pul a baazigar on my poor car,but since its become a useless force against an immovable tree, its just sitting there, burning rubber, till the time a few of my mates got to the car and switched it off!!!Final damage, boot and bonnet changed, chassis had to straightened(car was under tension for 4 days!!)25k,in 05, for a student!!!!thankfully, the accent guy was thankful we didnt make a police case, and paid up.....Anatomy of disaster:the cook guy was in the drivers seat, the driver was having a power nap in the passenger seat.car was in 1st gear,steering completely turned till lock on the left,the accelerator was being used as footrest,and the cook wanted to listen to the radio,so he just twisted the keys..........or so i have surmised.but man is that story still being told around college!!one of my marketing profs even made it an anecdote as to how indian firms should dispose old cars!!But just imagine, being withing 10 feet of an accident involving your car,but no involvement from you own self!!kind of an out of body experience.
