Driving on Indian roads is quite risky. There are multiple examples that prove this. Hundreds of accidents are reported from different parts of the country every day. The build quality of a vehicle is something that many car buyers prefer when buying a new car. When we talk about build quality, brands like Tata and Mahindra come out on top, as they are well-known for it in the market. In the video here, a Tata Nexon SUV had a head-on collision with an oil tanker at high speed. Fortunately, the driver in the Nexon escaped with injuries.
The video has been shared by Nikhil Rana on his YouTube channel and was also shared by one of his subscribers online. The exact location is not known, but it appears to be somewhere in South India. In the video, we can see a Tata Nexon with a completely damaged front end. The driver of the car was still in the vehicle when the video was shot. It is not clear how the accident happened, but the video does mention that both vehicles were traveling at high speeds.
It seems like both cars were coming from opposite directions on the road, and one of them might have lost control of the vehicle, leading to a head-on collision. Locals gathered around the vehicles immediately and started taking necessary actions to rescue the individual. It was certainly a major accident as the front of the car is completely damaged. Not only the front, but the roof and the pillars are also damaged.
The video is not very clear, and we cannot see if the airbags deployed on time. The Tata Nexon is one of the safest cars in its segment, competing with cars like the Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, and Mahindra XUV 300. The Nexon recently received a facelift, but it is not clear if the car involved in the crash was the facelifted version or the old one. Whichever it may be, the Tata Nexon once again proved its build quality.
From the details available online, it seems that both vehicles were speeding on the highway. We have mentioned in the past that overspeeding can be dangerous and may lead to accidents. The video does not provide much information about the condition of the truck and its driver. However, looking at the video, it appears that the truck only sustained some damage to the front, and hopefully, the driver is safe as well.
The spot where the accident happened appears to be a narrow road. Driving on such roads can be very challenging at times. The Nexon driver was extremely lucky to have escaped with injuries. One must always be careful while driving on the road, avoiding overtaking on narrow roads. Always follow the speed limit and traffic rules. Driving a safe car doesn’t give you the right to be reckless on the road, as doing so not only puts your own life at risk but also the lives of other road users.
