Open gutters!!

Since we’re celebrating(?) car mishaps today.. i thought i’d share this picture today…

I used to wonder why so many drivers are careful going over roads covered in water, and even though i *knew* it was due to not knowing what lay underneath… i was also skeptical at times…. then i saw this…


This car was so deep in a gutter (which the driver didnt see due to water covering the opening) its rear tyre was suspended in mid air!!!

P.S. The driver was me… and the car is mine while going to a meeting this morning! Damn client location! :@

    Ooh . Yeah how did you get it out of there ? :D .. BTW I had almost done the same with my leettle FX a few days back, Thankfully I was saved by just a few inches :).

    Driving in Karachi is just like a game of Golf, Just replace the car with the ball and do exactly the opposite of what you do in Golf, Avoid the hole. :P

    how i got out? pretty simple, pulled my car out of the hole :D had one more guy to help me….

    the result is that now i’ve got a muscle spasm in my back.. but the wonderful thing about the mehran is.. that its very light :p i had it half out the whole myself :p

    Dude, you call that wonderful??? imagine if someone is involved in an accident in a car as light as this one :P

  11. mansoor (unregistered) on September 23rd, 2006 @ 3:56 pm

    zag: even though its light, the frame of this car is quite strong. I’ve seen mehrans survive quite many accidents with their structure intact. The body however, is another story :P
