Driving a car seems like a job too easy and much fun. Latter, it surely is, but it does require constant attention and mind-body coordination to let your reflexes work out this art. At times, however, the attention goes for a toss, resulting in a mishap, which can be fatal. Although, a well-built car can keep the occupants away from injuries in an accident. Here’s one similar situation to give you folks an idea. Here's a Tata Nexon, which was driven by a youth on a wet and winding road beyond the designated speed limits of the road. Therefore, made the car lose traction and fall in the ditch on the roadside.
The incident took place somewhere in Kerala. It can be seen in the pictures that the car first collided with something and then toppled on to its roof. Also, the engine flew out from its bonnet and landed around 20 feet away from the car. While the pictures of the mishap are tragic, the driver walked out of the car with a fractured shoulder. However, the car’s condition hints that the driver was driving beyond his capabilities and the speed limit of the road, which isn’t appreciable. Since driving a safe car only keeps the occupants alive, but other road users are at risk.
