There are numerous car crashes on a daily basis but only a handful are lucky to escape a seemingly fatal accident.
In shocking news, a truck overturns on a Hyundai Creta but the occupant escapes unhurt. Creta has received 3 stars in the Global NCAP safety rating and is the best-selling mid-size SUV in the country. In fact, it has stayed at the top for a long time now. Its modern looks, feature-laden cabin, multiple powertrain options and dense Hyundai dealership and service network are some of the reasons why people buy it left and right. However, if the NCAP ratings are anything to go by, it is not the safest car in the segment. Still, it managed to save a man in a recent horrific crash. Here are the details.

Thousands of lives are lost in road crashes each year in our country. Most of these take place due to overspeeding and disregarding safety protocols.
