This latest video comes from Prateek Singh on YouTube. This channel often posts content around the performances of popular cars in unfortunate situations. This time around, a case has emerged from Bhubaneswar, Odisha. As per the information in the video, there were 4 youngsters travelling in Tata Punch on a highway. It was during the early morning hours when the driver lost control at high speed, climbed the divider onto the other side, and collided with a city bus coming from the opposite direction. The narrator of the video mentions that the driver was possibly sleepy, which is why he lost control of the car.
In any case, the damage is severe. The entire front and sections of the micro SUV are in a dilapidated condition. Initially, two passengers were reported to have sustained minor injuries, while the other two had some major injuries. Unfortunately, one of the latter succumbed to his injuries. This is very saddening. But this teaches us about the potential consequences of overspeeding. We hope that the injured personnel recover and get healthy soon.
