Nissan Magnite Accident
The video is captured somewhere in the mountain region. The blue-coloured Nissan Magnite is seen damaged from the right side. It is not clear how this set of events transpired but it can be safely assumed that one of the two cars involved in the accident must’ve been driving on the wrong side of the road. This is a common reason for accidents in hilly areas of the country. The impact took out the right side of the compact SUV. However, there are no signs of impact reaching either the inside of the cabin or the side pillars. This represents the build quality of the body and how well it can transfer the load to the outside of the vehicle. This is a great sign for any car to have. The airbags had also been deployed adequately and no injuries were sustained to the occupants of the Magnite. However, quite some damage was done to the headlamp cluster, bumpers, fenders, etc on the right side (driver side).
