Very unfortunate and sad.Such precious life lost due to sheer stupidity and negligence on trucks part. One has got to note that no vehicle on earth however safe and costly would have prevented the life taking accident,which takes us to the point how many times have you seen trucks like this plying on the road carelessly ignored by Police and RTO.

Nothing less than the murder case should be registered against the vehicle owner,company and the driver. This isn't accident !!!!

this was bound to happen at some point of time...even though its illegal for rods to protrude outside the truck,this practice is rampant across India...at one point of time, i have seen cops in mumbai catching such trucks but that initiative seems to have faded away now...

Now how police reacted on the spot they just towed the car to the police station without taking victim's body out from the car. How can they do that??

there is some rule that trucks having such rods have to put lights at the end of the rod if it is sticking out
sometimes, seen these trucks go in the night with only red cloth tied on one of the rods, sometimes not even that
those trucks are disasters waiting to happen
trucks and buses should have dedicated lanes without civilian transport, sure these roads will be automatically pothole free as well

erm...no that is illegal...i understood what u meant...seen that on highway many times,these trucks tie a red cloth at the end to warn people but that is straight up illegal...i have seen many of these being pulled over by traffic cops...no rod or wires are allowed to protrude outside a truck...that reminds me of an accident near kalanagar road in bandra mumbai once...it was a skoda fabia which drove into the rods,heard he survived though
he had also tied a red cloth at the end...

Indian Motor Vehicle Act Regulations which includes amendments up to B.C. Reg. 90/2012, April 20, 2012 clearly states that "No part of a vehicle may have a sharp or ragged edge which could injure persons or objects. " Also that no vehicle shall carry goods,objects that would protrude outside the length or breadth of the vehicle from sides or in length or in any manner whatsoever.
Also "(2) Except when the combination of vehicles consists of a motor vehicle and a pole trailer, the length of the drawbar or other connection between the motor vehicle and the trailer shall not exceed 6 m. "
