Three youngsters died in a car crash that took place on the Vandalur – Minjur road, while one other person travelling along with them survived the horrific accident.
Four youngsters, Aravind (23), Manohar (22), Deepak (22), and Prabhu (22) were in BMW, on their way to attend a friend's wedding, when the incident took place. The car was damaged beyond repair, and the mangled metal looks like a BMW 3 Series.
Prabhu, an MBBS student studying in a private college was behind the wheel when the car lost control and ended up veering off the road into a ditch on the side of the road. Aravind and Manohar were killed instantly, while Deepak died on the way to the hospital.
Prabhu, who suffered severe injuries, is being treated at the Poonamallee government hospital. The three youngsters who lost their lives were engineering graduates working with a private firm in Perungalathur.
The bodies of the three individuals who died have been sent for post-mortem to a private hospital in Porur, and the police are investigating the incident. It is unclear if the driver, or the other occupants had alcohol in their systems at the time of the crash.
