VIJAYAWADA: Two youngsters were killed in a road accident at Poranki on Friday. The Penamaluru police said that the accident took place near Anjaneyaswamy temple when a Vijayawada-bound speeding tipper from Kankipadu hit a motorcycle coming in the opposite direction.

The motorcycle rider Talla Durga Prasad (21) and pillion rider Puli Nagarjuna (19) were killed on the spot. Durga Prasad was a resident of Yanamalakuduru, against whom the Penamaluru police opened a history sheet last year.

Nagarjuna, a resident of Kamayya Thopu, was an unemployed, the police said. The tipper driver was absconding.
