    Thats telugu and the summary of the report is that the Guy driving the car was cornering at a high speed, lost control and hit the divider resulting in toppling of the car. The guy seems to be seriously injured (probably exaggeration) and there was a woman co-passenger too (nothing about her injuries/safety has been mentioned). Looks like a T-jet to me. Hope it is not one of our members.

    Cornering at high speed is the USP of Linea/Punto. How did this happen with Linea?

    He might have been in way too much speed, even the best would have some limit and when you cross that this happens.
    Also experience counts a lot, over confidence either on yourself or car is always bad. One should drive upto the speed at which one is 100% comfortable and in complete control of car.

    I was traveling in a volvo from chennai to cochin on 21st night. It was raining and near Kancheepuram the vehicle stopped with a jerk. Every body couldn't understand what happened. The door was unable to open. The front vehicle applied a sudden brake and volvo driver, to avoid the hit, turn the vehicle towards left side. But the level of side land was much below the road level and vehicle was about to topple. But the amazing thing was nobody realized the entire thing except a small jerk. The vehicle build quality is superb and it absorbed the shock without passing it to passengers.

    Waited two hours on highway. There was a roadside dhaba near that place and probably the front truck might have applied sudden brake after seeing the dhaba. I have observed this with few other vehicle. When follow a truck at night always keep a safe distance. They can change the lane or stop the vehicle without a signal.

    There was no light so the picture quality is bad.
