Bapatla-based pharmacist Madhavi dies in Florida car crash

The family of Madhavi Chowdary Balineni, 39 years, who was killed in a car crash at Ocala in Florida state, in the USA, plunged into grief on hearing the news of her death.

Madhavi, was killed in a car crash at about 7.56 a.m. on September 9, after she had crossed into oncoming traffic in the 5000 block of Southwest State Road 200.

The accident took place after her car crossed into a lane of oncoming traffic and was hit by another car. Madhavi was pronounced dead shortly after she was taken to a hospital.

On the morning of September 9, Madhavi, a pharmacist, was driving to office on her day shift. She had just left home after her husband returned from the night shift. Family members said that Madhavi could have taken a U-turn to avoid a longer route but the decision proved fatal as she plunged into the incoming traffic from the eastern direction.

Back home, the family stays at Vivekananda Colony in Bapatla where Madhavi’s father Balineni Sambasiva Rao lives with his wife Seetha and his brother Venkateswarlu. The couple have a son, Vijay, who lives in Australia and his family had reached Bapatla on Friday afternoon.

Madhavi was a graduate in Pharmacy and left for the U.S. in 2002 and later married a fellow Pharmacist Trivikram in 2004. Since then, they have been living in Ocala in Florida state. The couple has no children.

It was believed that the couple, both ardent devotees of Krishna, observed a fast during Janmasthami. Madhavi was reporting for work after a two day break, the family members said.

“We expect the postmortem to be completed on Friday and the body would be flown here by Sunday. My sons are there in the U.S. and helping our son-in-law to cope up with this tragedy,’’ said Mr. Venkateswarlu.
