8 car pile up in an accident near RFC, Hyderabad (Vijayawada - Hyderabad Highway).

According to the video, the first car driver braked suddenly causing pile up of all the other cars behind.

I suspect fog to be the culprit here. One interesting thing about the accident is, all the 8 cars belong to Maruti Suzuki stable. The nearest M.A.S.S to this accident site would have good income from these repairs.

I would rather say the drivers and speeds are to blame. The driver has to drive according to road conditions and be able to stop in time.
Speeding in near zero visibility is plain madness.

Not just road conditions, you need to know your car's limits, your personal limits on how quick are your reflexes. Then add a generous dose of buffer to it.

And then, count on your stars that the guy behind you is also knows all these things.

All the cars are in a neat line, one behind the other. Might be they were driving together, and closely following each other.

When I drive I am not out to test the limits of myself or the car. I am just moving myself from A to B.
Limits are tested on the race tracks but not on your way to work.
Looking at some driving tests in India tells me that there are no limits to test with such a basic test. Every safe trip will be a feat. The tests are not even conducted in real traffic.
The tests are not a challenge at all.

A head on crash between a Nexon and Creta.
Occupants in both these cars came out safe with minor bruises and mild chest pain due to the inflation of the Air bags. Both the cars have suffered severe frontal damages. Creta seems to have affected more at least from the pictures.

A few days ago, a Creta with similar frontal damage has landed up in a traffic police station which is on my way to work. Attaching a picture I took.

The side however is fine with a bit of area below A pillar jutting into the cabin area on passenger side.

It doesn't matter which has has crumpled more, what matters is how much intrusion happened to the passenger cabin.

This is the worrisome part, because a small intrusion is enough for the passenger to hit their head or hands.

If there's an accident of this scale, car has to be scrapped. I hope that Nexon doesn't come back from repair shop.

Sir, someone's fault cannot become someone else's right to runover. I am sure if the slow 2 wheelers annoys you, you still won't runover them!

That annoying vehicle needn't be cycle alone, it could be bike, car or even a lorry.

On a lighter note, this should probably also go to our recent thread on "Automotive coincidences in India"

That's quite shocking and wondering how careless the officials are, looks like nobody is caring it so happened

Pics: Accidents in India-img_20211129_1646392.jpg

Saw this brand new Fortuner spiritedly overtaking me on Chord road, Bengaluru today; Only to realise after the successful overtake that it was badly rear-ended. The boot door was badly damaged. If at all, it had 3rd row occupants during the impact, I am guessing they would have had serious injuries.

Apparently, it was being driven to the service center(I believe for accidental repairs).

Default Pics: Car falls in agricultural well, 3 killed

A car crashes and falls into a very large agricultural well by the road side in Telangana. News reports indicate that the car was travelling from Dubbak to Siddipet. From the pictures it appears that this road passes close to the well , which is quite full at this time. The well doesn't have any safety wall nor are there any safety barriers by the road side.
Fire department has pumped out large amounts of water from the well and some local deep divers attached ropes to the car to pull it out using a crane. In that process, a deep diver got stuck in the car and was drowned. After pulling out the car, police discovered two bodies in the car, a son and mother. Other details are not known at this moment.

What is with these Open wells near the highways. Owners of these wells should be ordered to raise the security walls. Its a risk for the vehicles and people around. We had a similar accident last month
