    Sad, the innocent child lost life... most accidents happen due to over speeding.. if not men at least women who travel as passengers should alert the drivers who drive recklessly.

    It is terrible.

    My guess is that the driver was under 25. In such a situation the vehicle ALWAYS loses control.

    If the driver is under 25, do not engage him as your driver.

    Mangalorean ,Mangalore,not necessarily driver should be under 25years.There are elder ones too drive fast to reach earlier.Everyone who drives should keep in mind,better reach home safer than never reach.second fact is car is almost full with passengers without limited persons.Better small children should have a special seat with belt like in developed country s and it may atleast lessen childrens mortality when met with accident.Heartfelt sympathy to the family. Roads too are not best in India in some areas.tyres are also matter .
