Bad Car Accidents

John McInerney, singer of veteran international pop group Bad Boys Blue, has been hospitalized in Russia after being involved in a serious car accident. The crash took place between Bad Boys Blue gigs in Novosibirsk and Tomsk on Saturday (March 4). McInerney suffered a fractured hip and was transported to two Russian hospitals for the procedure, and is expected to be transported again to a hospital in Moscow. Also in the car was McInerney’s wife and backup singer Sylvia, Bad Boys Blue manager Taras Volkovinsky, and the group’s hired driver. The other passengers were not injured. McInerney was in the backseat of the car and on the side of impact. “John was brought to the hospital in Marsh where he got the first aid and then was transported to the hospital in Tomsk where he successfully suffered surgery on his hip fracture,” writes Michał Drozda on the Bad Boys Blue Facebook page Sunday morning (ET). “Tomorrow, John will be transported to Moscow and then from Moscow to Warsaw where he will continue recovering. Last but not least John would like to say ‘thank you’ to the medical personnel and support staff of the said hospitals.” According to reports by Russian news agencies, bad visibility and icy road conditions caused the crash. “On Saturday morning, on the way to Tomsk our car collided with a truck, which blocked part of the roadway in a collision,” Volkovinsky tells Russian media, translated by Google. “It was poor visibility on the road due to snow, strong ice on the road in the wrong place stood a van, occupied part of the road we did not go quickly, we have the driver of a professional… we could not overtake because of oncoming traffic. We started to slow down, but did not escape the collision, right side collided with a truck.” After performing at “Mega Dance 90” in Novosibirsk on Friday night, Bad Boys Blue cancelled their Saturday appearance in Tomsk. The cities are separated by about 165 miles. Bad Boys Blue formed Germany in 1984, and McInerney is the lone surviving member of the group’s classic-era lineup. Wildly popular in Eastern Europe and Russia, Bad Boys Blue performed select shows in North America in 2015. Below is a look at the Lexus carrying the group.

In the days of CARFAX and Autocheck, it’s easier than ever to tell if a vehicle you’re considering was in an accident. For many shoppers, CARFAX and Autocheck mean a process that once meant visiting a skilled body shop can now be handled with the click of a button. What if that click reveals some bad news, such as past damage? Should you buy a car that’s been in an accident? We have a few suggestions.How Bad Was the Accident?The first thing we’d do if we found an “accident car” is figure out how bad the accident was. Sometimes CARFAX will report this information. For example, I recently looked at a pickup for which CARFAX said: “Minor damage; vehicle was driven from the scene.” That doesn’t bother me so much, since it means the truck was probably only dented or scraped.A CARFAX report that says “major damage” or notes a car was towed from the crash site is certainly a red flag. However, CARFAX isn’t always accurate. Sometimes, a 4-car accident in which three cars sustain major damage can show up as “major damage” on the undamaged car’s CARFAX report. Such errors are just a reality of the system. And that’s why we recommend having a car inspected if you’re even a little concerned about a bad CARFAX report.

Check It OutIf the CARFAX report brings up any red flags or questions, we strongly recommend taking the car to a trusted mechanic or body shop. We certainly suggest this take place through a mechanic or body shop you know and not through the seller.Most mechanics or body shops can quickly identify a car that’s had paintwork. Looking underneath painted panels, many can find evidence of a prior accident. But if a car is a really good deal, that alone isn’t reason to panic. After all, thousands of cars are in accidents — especially minor ones — every year. Does that mean they should never be considered again?Who Fixed It?One major factor is figuring out the quality of the repair. Who fixed it? Was it a “factory” body shop with ties to the automaker? Or was it a cheap repair job done as quickly as possible? Your mechanic should be able to tell you his opinion. But if paint colors don’t match or panels don’t properly fit, that’s a sign it wasn’t a thorough fix — and there could be more issues underneath. We also recommend looking at emblems and badges. A car that was hit in back and lost its emblems may be a sign that the body shop cut corners on the repair.

Title StatusMaybe the biggest thing to consider when you’re thinking about buying an accident car is its title status. In many states, a salvage title is issued to a vehicle in which the cost of repairs exceeds its present value. Meanwhile, a rebuilt title is issued when a repaired car has been inspected by the state and meets certain safety criteria.In both cases, a so-called branded title is a mark that will stay with the car forever. A rebuilt title can never be altered, so the next buyer will know the car has been in an accident. And some insurers won’t provide coverage for cars with rebuilt titles, since it’s difficult to know their value and condition. As a result, we generally suggest staying away from rebuilt or salvage titles.Resale ValueOne last consideration with accident cars is resale value. If you buy a car knowing it was in an accident, it’s likely the next buyer will easily find out the same thing. So while you’re paying less up-front for your vehicle, remember you probably won’t get as much when you go to sell it — and keep in mind that your car may be a tough sell.

TagsCrime, Health, Russia, Accident, Vehicles, PoliceOn Saturday morning two buddies working together in a company in Yaroslavl came to work still high from yesterday’s drinking marathon. Their boss refused to admit them to work, telling both to go home and sleep it off.Instead of using public transport, the couple got into an old Toyota Corolla and started to drive homeward.The 36-year-old driver made no allowance for his condition and after some time of reckless driving and speeding crashed right into the front of a small bus carrying some 20 passengers. The crash happened downtown on the Dobryninsky Bridge.The bus sustained considerable damage, though the passengers remained luckily unhurt. The 33-year-old passenger in the car was killed. The rear part of Toyota Corolla was actually torn off the chassis.The driver of the car was so drunk, so scared or both that he opted not to stop and drove more than 5km more down the road, eventually colliding with a Subaru at a crossroad.Witnesses to the accident were shocked at the scene of a pile of scrap continuing on its way and phoned police to make the zombie vehicle stop. Vigilant citizens made a number of calls reporting of demolished car’s progress. Finally, police arrested the driver in a courtyard further down the road where the man drove to abandon the remnants of the vehicle.Police officers found that the man was so drunk he could barely walk, let alone to drive a car. The body of his unfortunate friend was extracted from the debris of the ruined vehicle.The driver was toxicologically examined, interrogated, but later on he was allowed to go home because a sobering-up center in Yaroslavl no longer exists, Life News reported. Later, a court ordered the man be arrested for 15 days and stripped him of his driving license for a year-and-a-half. If the driver’s fault in the passenger’s death is proven it could result in a prison sentence for up to seven years.Still, what really bewildered experienced police officers was the remains of the car, which continued to drive despite looking like a pile of metal scraps, with reportedly only one detail remaining fully intact – the driver’s seat.Screenshot from youtube.com @PoliceYaroslavlScreenshot from youtube.com @PoliceYaroslavl
