HYDERABAD: Three members of a family, including two children, heading to their house after attending a function were killed in a road accident at Shatmarai in Rajendranagar on Friday.

The boys - Pradeep, 5, and Hemanth, 1, - and their mother Prameela, 25, were travelling on a scooter being driven by their father Pramod, 30, when a DCM van hit them around 4.30 p.m. Pramod, 30, sustained serious injuries in the accident and was admitted to Osmania General Hospital.

They were on the way to their house in Rambagh when the van’s driver lost control and rammed into the scooter. “Both the children got crushed under the van’s wheels,” the Rajendranagar Inspector Ch. Srinivas said. Prameela was rushed to OGH where she succumbed to injuries while undergoing treatment.

Pramod works in a tyre retreading company. The driver fled the spot.
