Lucky Escape

It was about 5:30PM and I just got up into my Vios, almost leaving my customer's office in KL. Suddenly my dad called me and told me some car accident happened. At first I thought he was stucked in a jam which was due to an accident but after talking abit more on the phone only I found out that he was involved in an accident.

What happened was, when my dad turned into our neighbourhood while the traffic light was green. Out of a sudden, another Iswara was speeding like about 80km/h and just hit our Iswara's left side. There was no sign of brake at all as that bas3rd was beating the traffic light. Right after the Iswara was banged, it spun 180 degrees, went up the kerb and hit the other car which was waiting at the traffic light. Both left side glasses were broken, rear tyres were punctured, rear wheels were deformed and the B pillar collapsed badly.

My sister was sitting in front, her spectacles and lecture notes flew out of the window after the glass was shattered. The impact was really huge. Below are the photos of the bas3rd's Iswara.

Apparently, that bas3rd was driving extremely fast on that stretch of road which has 2 traffic lights very near to each other. The first one could be green and right before he reached the second one (where accident happens), his phone rang and he was digging out his phone from his pocket without noticing the traffic light was red. A small mistake which almost robbed both my dad and sister's life. Thank God that both of their medical reports show that they are in good condition, besides some bruises. More photos of the our poor Iswara...

Some brief history about our Iswara. This car is 6 years and 4 months old. It has never met with any road accident before with careful use except some minor dents. The paintwork was still in good condition and the wheel well was as clean as a showroom unit. Initially I planned to wash, clay, polish and wax this car over the long weekend. What a waste...the car clocked a mileage of 63,000km yesterday. Anyway, I hope everyone drives carefully especially during the festive season. There are many red light beaters these days so WATCH before you go even if the traffic light turns green. Majority of the Malaysians still have poor mentality on the road. Lastly, remember this bas3rd who caused this havoc...

Man, thank goodness both your sister and your dad are ok. I symphatise your Iswara but on the good side, your loved ones are ok. These sort of ba3tards are everywhere causing traffic havoc. Take care on the road man.

Dear Clement and Kenneth, thank you so much for dropping by here and being concern about my dad and sis. Though we're all detailing enthusiasts, but we must always remind ourselves that car is merely a transport and for protection. It's nothing compared to life. A screwed up paintwork can always be repainted, but a dead person can never revive! Drive safely dude...
