Villagers of Agepally in Manchal on city outskirts attacked film producer, Bandla Ganesh, after the car in which he was travelling hit a person crossing the road on Wednesday night.
The producer was coming to the city from Guntur when his car rammed into a pedestrian before hitting a roadside eatery.
"Ganesh maintained that his driver jumped out and fled. Angered over the accident, some villagers chased and beat up him,” the Ibrahimpatnam ACP, V. Surender Reddy, said on Thursday.
While the injured villager was admitted in Ankit Hospital at Ibrahimpatnam, the producer was taken to Kamineni hospital.
