6 drunk students joyride kills 1, makes 9 yr old brain dead
If the pathetic driving and riding skills of most of us was not enough to cause thousands of road deaths and accidents, some idiots continue to drink and drive.
Just a few days after 26-year-old Aishwarya, a techie and daughter of Wilton Rulans, a leading insurance surveyor from Chennai, behind the wheels of an Audi, driving in an inebriated condition killed a 45-year-old carpenter on the IT Corridor, comes another case of drunken driving.
6 drunken engineering students travelling at a high speed in a Hyundai i10 rammed into a road divider and into an oncoming Hyundai Santro from opposite side in Banjara Hills, Hyderabad. The accident left one person dead and a 9-year-old fighting for her life at a private hospital.
Passengers of the Santro included the girl, her mother, grandfather and two uncles. One of the uncle died on the spot, while Ramya, the 9-year-old is brain dead. The other passengers in the car are also seriously injured and undergoing treatment. The uncle who died, had recently got his US visa, where he was going to shift soon with his family. He is now survived by wife and a 1 yr old daughter.
The family was on their way back after picking up Ramya from her first day at her new school. Ramya is on ventilator support and doctors have declared her brain dead. She suffered internal bleeding in her head and is not in any condition to undergo surgery. Ramya’s mother has not been told about her condition.
It was Ramya's first day at new school & whole family went to bring her home; none came home
