Girl student killed, two pals injured in ORR car crash

Hyderabad: In a pre-dawn road accident, a 20-year-old female student of University of Hyderabad died when the car in which she was travelling hit a road divider at Burujuguda near Shamshabad on Hyderabad-Bengaluru national highway in the early hours of Wednesday.

According to the police, the victim, Ananya Goyal, who hailed from Delhi, was a student of MA Political Science and was travelling in the back seat of the car while her friend Jatin was driving the car. Her friend Nikhita was sitting in the passenger’s seat in the front when the tragedy took place. 

The police could not say whether Jatin was in a state of intoxication or not. They sent his blood samples to Continental Hospital for checking to find out if It has any traces of alcohol. “We are not sure if it is a case of drunken driving.  We are waiting for the report,” Shamshabad Police said.

They were on a long drive on the Outer Ring Road and when Jatin who was driving the car wanted to take a U-turn but as the vehicle was moving at a very high speed, he could not control it the moment he turned right to take the turn and hit the divider at about 3.20 am. The  car flew into the air and then crashed to the road, killing Ananya and injuring the other two.

The impact threw the car high into the air which seconds later crashed to the ground. Though Jatin and Nikhita escaped with minor injuries, Ananya was fatally injured and died on the way to hospital.

The three of them first had dinner at a hotel in Gachibowli celebrating the birthday of Jatin and later decided to have a drive on the Outer Ring Road. After the mishap, Jatin pulled himself together and called the police control room at 100 and ambulance at 108. 

The help arrived in a matter of minutes and took them to a private hospital but the doctors there told them that Ananya was dead. The doctors after treating the two others discharged them as the wounds were not of serious nature. The body of Ananya was shifted to Osmania General Hospital for post mortem. The body will be handed over to her parents who are on their way to Hyderabad from Delhi.
