    Hope the ambassador was ok! Looks like the car fell apart a bit when it hit! Good timing.

    Someone on a bike asked if the driver was sleeping because its rare to find an accident here without crashing into another vehicle. But hitting a pole on a nice wide road....he must have been sleeping.

    Caution: Slippery surface (if that is the correct English term).

    And hey, these look like they belong into our Photojournalism Forum! Should I shift them ... ah, better not right now: most people come to browse through the General Gallery... but it is a nice piece of photojournalism!

    Actually I did a search on car accident in this forum and found that the car accident photos (here, here and here, the last one still has the photos missing from the server) were in the Photojournalism Gallery. What exactly differntiates the Photojournalism Gallery from the General one ?

    Photojournalism tells a (captivating) story in pictures, with only a couple of explanatory words required. So photos of accidents, fires etc that tell the story would qualify for that section (this is my interpretation of things, others may know better).

    If I'm not mistaken Ambassador's original design (which btw haven't made any huge leaps, yet) was borrowed from Morris Minor. :)

    Btw, nice pics. That must be the NH-47, right?

    Correct - NH 47 it is on the way to Kariavattom - 2 km from Kariavattom College.
