    @Zen, may be this spot cud be post Bannerghatta towards kanakapura road !
    As i was on a Conf call and was driving slow towards left..missed to notice the exact spot. Or
    As i said tow van was already on the spot they might have cleared it and the spot was very dark....As i applied break to slow down 20 feet from the accident spot...the nice patrol vehicle was there and no hazard warning buggers ! Only one man stopping the vehicles with hand held red light baton

    Hmm...May be it was cleared off by 7. Make sure u avoid diverting yourself via conf call while driving, tho slow but its NICE. People take it for granted that its super express highway :D

    Bhai, this news had come in kannada paper just a day before. It was the reason of tyre burst and loosing control of the car and ramming in to the bus which is approaching opposite side.
    I wonder this article gives a different reasoning. It was mentioned as tyre burst based on the local people witness and this paper says overtaking...

    Bangalore: Five youth killed as speeding car rams BMTC bus - Bangalore - DNA

    The condition of the car is so bad that there was no chance for people to survive. :( Sources say its a swift dezire (on closely looking at the alloy wheel in the picture, it seems like this is the first generation swift dezire.

    Drive safe guys !!!

    yes, its a first generation swift dezire (alloy in the pciture says it all).

    @Patchyboy I remember your 3 parameters of driving. One must always keep that i mind to avoid such unfavorable circumstances !!!

    Thanks Imran :)

    Mayur - It is simple. The car is capable of doing "x" speed. The driver is capable of "y" speed. The road and traffic can accommodate "z" speed. Of these three variables, choose the minimum. I have followed this principle most of my life, but what do I know, I am an old man :D

    Sadly the current generation wants to choose the maximum, sometimes with such consequences. As long it does not happen to them, they do not want to learn.
