Re: Pics: Accidents in India

Why is it that any fatal accident by Vehicle is mentioned as involvement of a Car, Bus, Truck etc. but if the Car happens to be a BMW, it is specifically mentioned as a BMW ?

I feel it is the envy of the Public against the rich owners of BMW that their accident gets notified by BMW as if BMW is notorious, whereas there are many times more accidents caused by other makes.

Racing with lack of proper riding skill. Straight line wannabes who couldn't handle a slight curve. I hope the innocent rider who was at the wrong place at the wrong time got away without life threatening injuries.

Even I hope the innocent rider made it out without debilitating injuries.

On the topic of skill - public roads are really not the place to show off the skills. Even if one is a licensed racer. It's purely lack of respect for fellow drivers/riders, lack of respect for rules, lack of respect for conditions - basically lack of civic education which results in these incidents.

Is just me or do you guys also see innocent rider's helmet coming off right after the impact? If that's the case, maybe the poor fellow did not strap the helmet properly. Very unfortunate.

Sincerely hope so. Towards the end of the video, he seems to be landing facing forwards. Hope he landed on his body / hands.

Yes I think you are right. His helmet seems to have come off.

Also, the nth pillion rider doesn't seem to have worn a helmet.

And the dude seems to have slammed his head hard.

The n-1 th pillion looks to have slammed his back onto the autorickshaws front wheel. That looks like a nasty back injury!

A victim of the multi vehicle collision on Navale bridge in Pune city shared the dash cam footage of the terrifying accident. A probe into the major accident that happened on Sunday night revealed that the truck which went on to hit 40 vehicles did not have a brake failure, but the driver had turned off the ignition to save fuel, the police said following an assessment by Regional Transport Office. While there were no fatalities in the accident, it left 15 people injured and 30 vehicles damaged. The truck driver and Driver's assistant are arrested by the police.

Re: Pics: Accidents in India

A vehicle is seen rolling on the street presumably due to tyre burst. Was in hindi could not make out. There are other angles in which some body is seen sliding on the road. Was it the vehicle passenger thrown out of the vehicle or did the vehicle hit a pedestrian ?

2 people in SUV were apparently going to visit someone in the hospital. They were hit by another vehicle (as per the passenger in the vehicle).

After the hit, both the driver and passenger were thrown out. The passenger had a fractured leg, the driver appeared fine and after checking on the passenger, he ran away from the spot. The lady is admitted in hospital and refused to register complaint against the driver. (In the video, the person rolling on the road is the female passenger, the driver is thrown towards the divider).

The report further states the the SUV was speeding.

There is no mention of the vehicle that hits the SUV.

It's not really a surprise considering most BMW drivers are jerks, world over according to numerous surveys.

Re: Pics: Accidents in India



A 19 year old rider and his 17 year old pillion died in an accident in Chennai when they were riding at 114kmph in city roads. They skid and fell when a load auto took a U-turn in front of them. The load auto driver was arrested. The 19 year old deceased didn't have a driving license.

Two young lives lost because of their recklessness. RIP.

1. Driving above speed limits and that too at 114kmph in city roads is a recipe for disaster. Single important reason for crash.

2. Driving without a valid driving license.

3. Load auto misjudged the speed of the bike and took U turn. Vehicles take U turn inside cities while the road is not clear expecting the other drivers to slow or stop for them.

4. Dual channel ABS is must in motorcycles. Even if you ride carefully and within legal speed limits, dual channel ABS will ensure you don't skid easily.

Nor are they aware of our cab drivers and a special species called Temp travellers and Toofan drivers. [Or, do we classify these last two as pilots as they fly low?]

I don't think there was any misjudgement by the load auto. The load auto guy (also bikes, cars, autos) simply start making turns like this expecting those coming in the straight road to slow down for them. It is a very common, dangerous driving practice and is especially true for places where medians have gaps for turns but without signals.

This happens a LOT in Chennai and especially on that specific road. The turning vehicles even keep inching forward, blocking a full lane until flowing traffic is made to stop for them.

This of course does not reduce any blame on the 2 wheeler driver. That was a dumb, mindless stunt that went wrong and ended in the worst outcome possible.

I was doing 3 digit speeds on my Honda Unicorn on the ECR in 2009 when the same thing happened to me, except I'm alive to tell the tale. A Tata Ace pulled in, in my path. At my speed, there was no scope to brake or maneouvre any which way. I braked briefly and let go of the bike; with its greater momentum, it went ahead of me and T-boned the Ace first. I followed suit shortly thereafter and struck the Ace's goods guard-rail/scaffolding head first. Miraculously, the helmet did its job very well. If my neck or spine suffered any damage, I don't know about it till date. The bike was still rideable (it was wobbly) to the nearest Honda service center.

Q: What did I do wrong?
A: 1) Leave alone the illegality of my actions; I exceeded the limits of the machine that I was riding. It is important to know the abilities of your bike/car and to not test its limits.
2) I didn't expect the unknown. If the road ahead is clear for now, it is not guaranteed that it will remain so. Anything can happen at any time. It is crucial to respect the unknown.

Q: Why did I do it?
A: I was young, depressed and frustrated with life. Everything was going wrong and had gone wrong for me. Hitting triple digit speeds seemed like one thing that I could at least achieve credibly. And I'll admit, I had this weird notion that my life was over. (Yes, things were bad for me at the time...not the least of which was coping with my mom's passing - and there were other depressing things to cope with as well.)

Q: Did I ever do it again?
A: Never again, not even on any of the cars I've driven. Once you crash and cheat death, you become this paragon of driving virtuously!

Q: Did the load carrier do wrong in my case (and in the current accident's case)?
A: Yes. But the crossing load carrier in both the cases only bear ~25% of the fault, for crossing without looking.
