A PowerPoint presentation on medical aspects of accident injuries kept around 100 students of BVK Degree College, who participated in the programme organised by Avagahana Road Safety Awareness Trust, engrossed for about an hour on the college premises on Wednesday.

Chairman of the trust T. Srinivasa Rao, who is an assistant professor of Orthopaedics at Andhra Medical College, spoke on the medical aspects of head injuries and their effect on motorists wearing helmets and those without helmets.

On accidents due to wrong parking on highways, Dr. Srinivasa Rao said that a motorist hitting a stationary vehicle at 100 kmph would sustain deceleration injuries.
