Reportedly, the 3 passengers in Baleno survived with injuries. However, the condition of the premium hatchback is quite astonishing. One can’t even recognise which model it is. The entire vehicle has been flattened like paper. The side pillars, door panels, bumper, windshield, etc. have all been destroyed completely. Lying on the road, one is barely able to find any solid component that is still intact. It is a miracle how the passengers were able to make it out alive.
