There were three persons in the Punch including a 7-year-old boy who was in the front passenger seat. Despite such a severe impact, the passenger in the rear seat suffered minor neck injuries, the driver was safe and the boy faced three broken teeth as he was not wearing a seatbelt. The driver of the truck was also safe. There are evident deformations on the front section of Punch.
