Does anyone have pictures of the sx4 that turned topsy-turvy on Necklace Road last evening? It is somewhere on the bend between Jala Vihar and PV Ghat.
My kids saw it, but I was not there to take pics.I thought of going after they told me, as it is not far from my house, but heavy rain deterred me.
Wonder how it turned upside down. I hope the occupants are safe.

Saw a badly mangled Zen at Jubillee Check Post (Hyderabad).

The car was so badly twisted that right rear wheel was a feet or two above the road.

VITARA ran over a median

i went to service ma car in banaswadi(bangalore) newly opened maruthi service station,last saturday

i was stunned to see a new model black grand vitara with blasted rear wheeles
even the alloys were damaged very badly,
the upper part of the front tyre came out side of the body line.

i was shocked to see it and later the person from the service station explained me what happened-

"it was a rainy night and vision was low , the car ran over a small median,
but the driver kept on accelerating ,but it was not moving n hooked up, still he tried then the back tyres blasted"

they didnt allow me to take the pictures....u should ve seen it,phatetic it was...they said it will take more than 1.5 lac to fix it up...

Ouch! Hope the beemer doesn't have too much damage to the body.
If it was on cruise control, the mode goes OFF the minute you hit the brake. Guess he didn't apply the brakes at all.

Must have dozed off at the wheel. Thats a big disadvantage in having a cruise control.

Man! I feel so sorry for the Be-em.
And feel sorry for the owner too! Can't even begin to imagine the repair bills!

I second that,but from the pic it does not look that there might be too much of damage to the Beemer,But for sure the thrill goes when the new car is repaired after such crisis.

I guess the car's gotten a few scratches/minor dents at the most. Nothing serious,from the pics.

Tractor accident/Climb

ACtually this one was unique in the sense that, every one including the owner was dumbstruck, and were wondering, how this thing managed to climb the boulder decoupling the trailer.

Wow! A tractor with the heart of a Humvee? I see a road behind the rocky area. Did the driver try some off-roading?
