Five people hailing from Andhra Pradesh died in a car accident late on Thursday in Oklahoma City, U.S., according to reports.
Though the U.S. authorities are yet to announce the victims’ names, they are believed to be Jaswanth Reddy Subbayyagari, Phanindra Gade, Anurag Anthati, Srinivas Ravi and Venkat. All of them were software professionals.
Only Venkat was married, while the others had recently graduated from U.S. universities and taken up employment, the executive vice-president of the Telugu Association of North America told The Hindu over phone from the U.S.
TANA is making efforts to find out where the victims hailed from. A friend of the deceased identified them. The association is making arrangements to send the bodies to India at the earliest.
