Hyderabad: A youth from Hyderabad died three days ago in a road accident in North Carolina, USA.

The deceased, identified as G. Sahith Reddy, 27, was on his way to the gym in the morning on May 11 when a speeding car hit him, leading to his death. He was found lying dead on the road with severe bleeding injuries.

Sahith Reddy, hailing from Nallakunta, Hyderabad, had moved to the United States in 2016 after receiving his Master’s degree in science in India. He was working odd jobs in New Jersey while awaiting better opportunities. “Sahith spoke to his mother a day before the accident took place. However, when we found his phone unreachable on the next day, we got in touch with a friend of his, who then got in touch with the police," said Sahith’s father Madhusudhan Reddy, a former BHEL employee.

Reports claim that Sahith wasn’t carrying any identity documents at the time of the accident, thereby making it difficult for the police authorities to identify him, trace his address, or reach out to his emergency contacts. It was only when his friends contacted the police that the news broke. Until much later, his family back in city had no clue about the accident.

“We have contacted the TS NRI Cell and the ministry of external affairs to seek their help in bringing back our son’s body. The Telugu association in North Carolina are doing their bit, too,” Sahith’s father added.

“We have contacted the TS NRI cell and the ministry of external affairs and sought their help to bring back his body . The Telugu Association in North Carolina is making arrangements,” Mr Madhusudhan Reddy said.

Location: India, Telangana, Hyderabad
