It is clearly mentioned that the Scorpio was driven by a driver.

that LINEA is quite new.. had it been some other car.. he would have got a replacement bonnet from some other Linea at CST Road, Mumbai.. some days ago i saw a Merc S class 2000-2006 version Rear Dickey at CST road.. that was some exotic scrap spotting there.

Look the second picture you have posted, notice the steering wheel of Accord and the road divider. Moreover, I am also putting up the last picture of your's after rotating it. This clearly indicates it was Esteem that was moving in wrong lane.

Not likely. The plastic mounting clips would have broken, making it totally useless - unless one wanted to use external screws to mount it back again.

A mammoth vehicle hammered by a mammal.

Hope all of them survived.They don't have any precautionary measures when doing such safaris in jungle.

received this on e-mail forward

the first 2 pics show an A8 split into half, not 2 different cars.
the last pic shows an S class, split in half.

in all the cases, both the front passengers perished.

if you think German cars are the safest, yes they are but that does not mean that some people test their limits beyond what they are meant to do.

yes, these acidents are not in our country but a gruesome warning of whats the danger lurking on our roads as all cases involve high speed crashes in excess of 200 kmph involving drunk driving.

request to mods: kindly do not delete the pics as this is a contribution from my side in spreading awareness about the ill effects of drunk driving.

No matter how expensive these cars are packed with top safety gadgets and gizmos, they work only to their limits, not beyond it.

NEVER DRINK AND DRIVE, ESPECIALLY AT LATE NIGHT AT HIGH SPEEDS.

The Honda Accord may not be the strongest vehicle. But it is safe. The Accord has a Euro NCap rating of 4 to 5 stars depending on the model, and that is a very safe car.
