Just a few days ago, we had shared a story about a reader from Kerala was driving his Tata Tiago in Alleppey and fell asleep at the wheel. He lost control at 60 kmph, which is when the car went into the side of the road. Upon impact, the car flipped upside down. Surprisingly, even at that speed, there is not much damage to the car’s body. All passengers escaped without any injury. All were wearing seatbelts. Images are credit to Mr Paul.

In another incident about, on the Ghodbunder Road in Thane, the Tiago driver tried to overtake a truck from the left. Sadly, the driver who had just learned to drive a car, ended up in being the result of a dangerous crash. Images are credit to Shifting-Gears.

It happened so, the driver failed to overtake the truck completely before swerving right and entering the path of the truck. This resulted in the Tiago driver getting the rear of his car brushed with the truck’s front. By this time the Tiago had lost control due to impact, and crashed into the vehicle in front, which was moving at a slower pace.

With the truck behind, and no time to apply brakes, the truck crashed into the Tiago. The Tata Tiago was sandwiched between the truck and the vehicle in front. The Tiago’s front and rear has been damaged badly, but the passenger cabin is secure. The airbags too deployed, and the passengers of Tiago escaped the incident unharmed.

Surprisingly, due to the impact, the truck driver was injured in this incident and taken to a nearby hospital owing to a lack of seatbelt and airbags. This accident resulted in a huge traffic jam. Soon cops arrived and moved the crashed vehicles on the side of the road so that one lane can be operational for vehicular movement. Local police is investigating the incident, and will soon take appropriate action against the faulty driver.
