4 Hyderabad medical students killed
At least four medical students were killed and 31 injured when a bus carrying them overturned after hitting a roadside tree at Gollapudi near Vijayawada late Monday night, police said.
The driver of the private bus was also killed in the accident which occurred on Vijayawada-Hyderabad highway.
The students of government-run Osmania Medical College were returning to Hyderabad after participating in a sports tournament in Andhra Pradesh when the accident occurred.
Police said the driver was drunk and driving the bus at a high speed, which led to the disaster. The survivors said the driver picked up an argument with them when they raised an objection to driving in an inebriated condition.
