hey since the past 3 weeks while coming back from lonavla on the mumbai pune expressway i ve seen a Burnt accent just off the road,( when we near panvel) till recently it was parked on the side but now its halfway in the ditch and half on the road, sorry could not get pics as was moving at a good speed, the whole car seemed to be burnt and the interior was also empty, probably robbed or burnt
The best part is, when I saw the picture first, I thought that in addition to the cabin, the yellow container had caved in due to the impact. Finally, when I looked at it closely, I infer that the shape of the container is such.
Posting some pics of an accident in Palio in July 2004 in Kolkata. My friend was driving the car and we were at quite high speed when suddenly a mentally retarded person jumped in front and my friend tried to save him. The wheels got locked under heavy braking and we landed up in the field beside. Hit a tree and tumbled three times before coming to a halt. We came out scratch-less. I think it was only possible because it was a Palio.
The images are not of good quality as they were taken with the Motorola v30 which I had bought just a few days before the accident...

Reason: High speed mentioned
BlackPearl, thats a nasty crash. Its not only the Palio that got you out scratch less but I am sure you guys had your seat belts on, did you? Are you serious you guys came out scratch less from this wreck?
@ MF - neither BlackPearl nor his friend wore seat belts - AFAIremember - wearing seat belts was not mandatory at that time. yes they came out scratchless. this happened near Rajarhat Express Way - my car also enjoyed a minor spin there @ the 2nd kolkata meet.

I will call it plain luck in that case and of course I dont deny that the car took the impact well and saved Blackpearl. Btw guys it is not mandatory any time to wear seat belts but please be assured they have saved a lot of lives here on team-bhp itself.
