Hyderabad: Three people were killed and one was injured in a road accident in Andhra Pradesh’s West Godavari district on Thursday.
The accident occurred when a mini-van coming from Nalgonda district in Telangana rammed into a stationary truck near Kaikaram in Unguturam mandal, police said.
Those killed were travelling in the van. A critically injured van driver was admitted to a nearby hospital.
Police suspect the driver might have dozed off, leading to the accident.
In a similar incident in October last year, a mini-truck carrying a marriage party had collided with a bus near Kandukur town in Prakasam district of Andhra Pradesh leaving fifteen people, including three children dead and several others injured.
