Drunk techie's horrible accident on Biodiversity flyover

A 28-year-old software engineer from Hyderabad, P.Akhilesh, was found drunk driving after he hits his car to a bike on the newly opened flyover at Biodiversity Junction, Raidurgam, on Sunday. This alcohol-impaired mishap claimed the lives of two and left four injured.

When the incident took place, Akhilesh, who is working for an IT company at Hitec City,  was driving along with his colleagues in an i20 Asta from Raidurgam to Hitec City. They all were coming back from a party. Due to being intoxicated, he lost control half-way over the flyover and hit a bike first. The bike had S Sai Vamshi of Saroornagar and his friend Vijay Kumar of Mahabubnagar.

S Ravinder, Inspector of Raidurgam police station said ''Due to the impact, Sai Vamshi and Vijay Kumar fell off the flyover on the road beneath it. They died on the spot''. After hitting the bike, Akhilesh went on to ram into a couple of bikes. Four others, Krishna, Subash, Sai Krishna and Pavan Kumar, were injured in the accident and were rushed to Osmania General Hospital.

Soon after, the locals topped the suspects from leaving the place and the Raidurgam police rushed to the spot. ''Akhilesh was driving under the influence of alcohol. A case has been registered against him and the vehicle seized,'' the Inspector said. In spite of reiterating the awareness of drunk driving adversities, youth has been disregarding the serious matter, leading to traffic accidents.
