Andhra Pradesh: Two killed and three critical in road accident in East Godavari

Two people died on the spot in a horrific road accident on the national highway at Kattipudi in Sankhavaram mandal of East Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh, while the condition of three is said to be critical. Going by the details given by the police and locals, the lorry which was stopped on Thursday morning was hit by a speeding car, killing two people on the spot and injuring another in the incident. The accident happened when an Innova car going from Rajahmundry to Visakhapatnam collided with a lorry. After getting information from the local people, the police reached the spot and started relief work. The three injured were taken to the hospital by ambulance. The deceased have been identified as Patnala Ramu and Ramana (21), residents of Rajahmundry. "The bodies have been sent to the hospital for postmortem and a case has been registered and investigation is on," police said.

Many accidents due to dead animals on highways
Hundreds of animal deaths due to road accidents on state and national highways are troubling motorists. Removal of dead animal carcasses has become a challenge as no one is taking the responsibility of removing the carcasses of animals. Thousands of people travel national highways every day. No one likes to catch a glimpse of a dead animal on the side of the road, but it can be a daily occurrence on the roads.

Seeing a buffalo carcass on the road last week, the driver tried to turn, but lost control of the vehicle and collided with a truck coming in the opposite direction. These dead bodies are dumped on the banks of lakes, ponds, abandoned places and roads in villages, which is again a health hazard. National Highway personnel, police patrol teams and highway users are urging government intervention to make travel on state and national highways safe and hassle-free.
