Actor Nasser's son critically injured in road mishap on ECR
A car with five passengers, including aspiring actor Faizal Nasser, son of veteran Tamil actor Nasser collided head on with a tanker lorry on the East Coast Road near Kalpakkam on Thursday morning. Three of them died on the spot, while the actor and his friend were taken to a nearby hospital in a critical condition.
According to Kancheepuram police sources, the accident took place around 8 a.m. when the car deviated from its path, for reasons unknown, and collided head-on with the lorry. The car was smashed.
Faizal and his friend Vijay Kumar, reportedly sitting in the back seat, were the only two alive when the villagers of Manammai, around eight kilometres from Mamallapuram, rushed to the scene to rescue the victims. The two were taken to the Government General Hospital in Chengelpet from where they are being transferred to the Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital in Chennai.
The family members of the injured are likely to shift them to a private hospital if they are fit to be moved, police sources added.
Police are unsure of the cause of the accident as the two men remain unconscious.
