Hyderabad: Three members of a family were killed when a car in which they were travelling rammed into a median and hit another car on the other side of the highway at Shamirpet on Sunday evening.
Three passengers who were travelling in the two cars involved in the accident survived with injuries and are being treated at a hospital. One of them is stated to be in a serious condition.
The accident occurred when a car carrying a family of four persons that was returning from the Siddipet side hit the median. The momentum flung the car to the other side of the road where it hit an oncoming car.

Due to the impact, Kishore, Bharathi and Sudhansh died on the spot, while Thaneesh received critical injuries. Two passengers travelling in the outbound car, Raju and Mahesh, sustained minor injuries.
