Fortunately, a major accident was averted as the aircraft was not in motion. Also, even though no one got hurt in this mishap, the incident shook everyone at the airport. It must be noted that the international terminal of the Delhi airport works at full capacity round the clock. The service staff of many airlines work overtime to ensure things run like clockwork. In such a scenario, it’s not uncommon for the workers to face fatigue. And this is exactly what could have happened here. It looks like the overworked driver of the Maruti Dzire dozed off behind the wheel, thereby completely missing the parked Airbus and colliding with its front wheel.

Strict Speed Limit Saves the Day

However, the stringent safety norms at the terminal saved the day. The speed limit for vehicles of the ground staff is 15 kmph on the movement area and Baggage Handling Area, and 30 Kmph on the perimeter road. Therefore, the low speed crash didn’t result into any damage to the landing gear of the aircraft. Moreover, the low speed ensured that the occupants of the Maruti Dzire stayed safe. Some people were quick to shoot the video of the aftermath of the incident. Also, the DGCA is investigating this incident. So far, preliminary report suggest carelessness of the Dzire’s driver to be the reason for this crash.
