Two killed, 2 injured after a car rams into a lorry near Penchikalpet


A retired Circle Inspector Vijaykumar and his wife Sunitha died after their car in which they were travelling collided head-on with a lorry coming from the opposite direction near Penchikalpet Cross in Elkathurthi mandal on the Warangal-Karimnagar highway early this morning.

Two others including driver and his daughter injured severely and were undergoing treatment in hospital. They were said to be proceeding to attend the funeral of his mother in his native village in Adilabad from Khammam where they are staying currently. A palm of gloom prevailed in both Khammam and Adilabad as the son who is supposed to perform last rites of his mother had to die within hours of his mother’s death.
