Oh My God - this is very very sad, but God Grace you are all ok. What a tragedy and it really hurts to me as a Ritz Owner, hope you use dashcam and everything are on the record, this is a Hit and Run & Dangerous Driving case for that Scorpio.

I'm feeling horrible to see your Car in that condition. I can't imagine the mental shock.

I know its quite hard to say , still I am saying , its better you leave this ride.
As it has met with continuous accidents.

The overall shell is weak , then post these 3 incidents. ( 2 Major and one minor)

Its very sad to see how events have unfolded. Thankfully you people are safe and well.
I wonder if you tried to apply brake urgently after Scorpio hit you? Or did he hit you with such a force that your small ritzy was thrown away?

Anyways, You should'nt have tried to force start the engine. As the car was on its side, Oil might have seeped into places where it should not have. Essentially giving you a Hyrdolock type situation.
In such cases, remove Injectors and Glow plugs, and crank the engines (Unplug Fuel pump relay) few times to flush out the oil. Then go for regular oil change then only start again.
Most engines do not do well with regards to oil at anything over 30~35 degree incline. The oil pickup may not have enough oil or too much of it.
Do keep us posted. And good luck on the repairs.

Hello all, Updating this thread after a very long time. Happy to state that Black stallion has been repaired and is back in action again. Following repairs were carried out-
1) New Half Engine assy
2) Gear Box overhaul (New Bearings)- Just a precautionary measure
3) New suspension frame
4) Front suspension OH-- New lower stabliser bar, arms, bushes etc
5) Rear New Axle
6) Denting and painting of all panels

Team at Maruti Automobiles, my all time favorite ones, spent one full day in taking all chassis measurements and were surprised to see no chassis damage. Indeed, Ritz is a rock solid car.
I will be posting pics soon.
I also completed 800 km trip in this car, the car drives like a new car now. Will be changing engine oil to fully Synthetic at 1000km.

Hello All,
Updating this thread again after a long time, again with a sad post. After 98k kms on the odo, and after 11 years, the family decided to sell the car and upgrade to something new. One of my friend came to rescue as he needed a second hand car for his official use. Since the car was going in safe hands, and the value was also much above what Maruti True Value was quoting with exchange bonus, the decision was made and finally the car was handed over to him yesterday.
With a heavy heart and happiness for the new one, sharing a few parting and final shots-
