The accident took place after they exited the NH-65 (Hyderabad-Vijayawada) and while crossing the Nehru Outer Ring Road overpass near Pedda Amberpet in the city limits.

The Hayatnagar police said the SUV was relatively travelling at a higher speed when it rammed into the rear side of the tipper truck on the curve. According to police sources, the vehicle’s driver did not display indication and the truck rear lacked significant reflectors for vehicles behind it too.

Hayatnagar police have commenced an investigation.
