Well, I’m not sure if last night was an unfortunate one or a fortunate one, but I would say a combination of them with more towards the latter. Yesterday night I and my wife were travelling to a place called Adoor (Kerala). Since we had come from Mangalore, we took dad’s car for the trip. We were barely 8 Kms from Adoor when we met with this accident!
It was around 9:10 PM and we were driving behind a fully laden lorry. Just as the lorry passed a huge tree on the side of the road, it pulled down one of the biggest branches on top of the road and it fell crashing on our car from a height of almost 8m.
It was a real lucky escape as I had put the brakes and it fell on the front windshield, has it fallen on top of the car, it would have been more serious. Luckily both of us came out unhurt, it was indeed a narrow escape.
I was not a fan of Wagon R from Maruti, but this car indeed saved our life because of its tall body status.
