Two women Telugu television artistes were killed and two others injured when their car rammed into a roadside tree on the city outskirts, police said Wednesday. Twenty-year-old J Bhargavi, student-cum-part time TV artiste died on the spot while co-artiste K Anusha Reddy (23), who suffered injuries, succumbed at a state-run hospital, a police official said.
Another artiste, Vinod, who was driving, and Vinay Kumar, a photographer, sustained injuries on their ribs and legs, the official said. They were returning after visiting a temple in neighbouring Vikarabad district, police said.
The accident occurred Tuesday when the driver fell asleep and suddenly noticed a lorry coming in the opposite direction and tried to avoid it only to ram into a tree.
