Hi All... Here is a post from a member who doesn't post too often but believes in this gang for help. Let me get to the point - I had a fairly scary crash yesterday on Western Express Highway, Kalanagar Junction, Bandra, Mumbai. The sequence of events is actually quite crazy. I was on the down slope of the flyover heading north towards the signal and for about 4 to 5 seconds, I seem to have simply blanked out. I have no other explanation for this behaviour as it has never happened before. I will visit a doc to find out more but I am guessing work stress just got to my mind. During these seconds, I was hurtling down at a good speed (about 60+) towards a stopped Innova. Just before it got too close, I slammed the brakes but it was too late and the crash happened. Pix attached will tell you the extent of damage. I must also tell you that I am now not sure whether I did blank out for that long or was it just something else. I really need help with a few points: I don't think the brakes worked. I've always suspected the brakes on the TJet+ but now this raises that doubt to a whole new level. I wonder what the ABS did too. The car simply went on and hit the car in front. Airbags did do anything. I am sure I was at a fairly high speed. Yes, the 'Check Airbag' / 'Airbag Malfunction' light is now on on the dash. But that is it. What should I do to claim insurance? I have been told to tell the insurance that this happened in rush hour traffic and that no one was hurt. Which part is true. The damaged Innova owner is not pressing any charges as he was more concerned about me than his car. I am paying for his damages separately. I called Fortune Cars Andheri East as I know the GM there but they're changing themselves into Concorde so they cannot take the car for at least 4 more days. I've had a bad experience at Torrid Cars (Fiat Authorised now) again at Andheri East. Haven't been there after neither do I know anyone there. Should I call the insurance company first and take it from there? I am with Future Generali in my second year with no claims made earlier. I also noticed something very peculiar - there was a lot of smoke in the cabin. I cannot tell if this was before or after the crash but it felt like that caused me to black out. I am not even sure if the seatbelt pretensioners exploded to cause smoke. Seat belts sure saved me. As things stand, the car drives perfectly. Straight geometry, no trouble from engine neither any stray rattling due to the crash. I am trying to first focus on getting my car back to perfect working order, get the Innova fixed and try to save as much money as I can. That is actually my priority list. Please do try to help me here.
