what he has hit on is not a rock its a small culvert which was marked with reflective paint / reflector that structure on the other side of the road has the same marking / reflectors.

Hope you are safe.
Can you post more details on what exactly happened and the damage sustained?

Happened to see an accident while returning from office. A toppled Tavera and a Logan. This happened at an intersection on Dickenson road. The Logan in the pic is the same one I am talking about and the Tavera was right opposite to the Logan. Sorry about the picture, could not take a better one as I was in the cab.

The great clash of the taxis, huh? The way these are driven around, somethings like this one, were bound to happen. There is a taxi lane needed in this city urgently and non-adherence should be punished.

Hmm, methinks tailgating by the milk jeep, and some panic braking by the truck. No one was around to tell - the jeep doesn't seem to have tried hard to swerve outta line either.

But scary. The same truck would have directly impacted my A pillar in a pileup.

Lol, The jeep seems to have lifted the rear wheels of the truck off the road
And I also like the "hazard warning" stones all neatly lined up.
