Looks like the impact with the scooter made the auto roll forward. This plus the typical two lane road curvature with centre part elevated and the two ends taping down

Everything else is apparent from the video, however, I hope she realizes that her decision to try and go around the auto was unwise.

Glad to learn that one family got saved from hearing devastating news.

Look at his speed while driving on the wrong side of the road. They went through a portal to another dimension.

This video has view from the opposite side as well. Car was doing pretty good speed and was on the wrong lane much before the impact. Happened in broad daylight, wonder how it could have happened. Driver distracted, may be??

They came back from Airport after dropping son. Going by location, its a 2 hour drive. Sleep deprivation, afternoon, probably after lunch, straight road, getting closer home - all the recipe for dozing off.

Re: Pics: Accidents in India

Saw this Tiago on NH66, Kasargod district, Kerala. Details unknown.

Pics: Accidents in India-20210107_081624.jpg

No clue how the rear wheel dislodged in a frontal collision. No intrusions into front cabin. If on seat belts, the passengers must have walked out with minor bruises.

Either distracted or fallen asleep, if he had crossed those rumble strips earlier or if the bus was father away, he would have probably got alert and had enough time to get back to his lane.

The bus driver can be seen thrown around on his seat and did well to control the bus from loosing control.

This road have rumble strips at very high frequency.
In addition to the rumble strips, these are lined with reflectors scattered in random order. They do rattle out the cars very hard, so much that there's very less chance for someone to doze off.

Looks to be momentary distraction, as the car swerved onto the other side just prior to the impact

Re: Pics: Accidents in India

I'm so sad for their poor poor son. Due to a second's loss of attention or sleep deprivation look what happened. The entire bus(which I'm assuming to be atleast of 5-7 tons) was lifted due to the severe impact.

Re: Pics: Accidents in India

Is this a lucky biker or a skilled biker?

That 360 degree move looks incredible!

The moves by the pedestrian contributing to the incident are incredible too. Observe his attitude even after the incident.

If only such characters realise that they are on a road and not in their garden.

Re: Pics: Accidents in India

This one is from chennai, wondering why he went straight for the median.
Solo person in the car and he is being treated for injuries.
