GUNTUR (AP): Four persons, including three students, were killed when their autorickshaw overturned and collided with a lorry at a village in the district, police said today.            

The students were going for their SSC examination when the driver of the autorickshaw, in a bid to save a dog running across the road, lost control over the wheels.

The three-wheeler overturned and was hit by a lorry coming from the other side near Jocil Company at Dokiparru village under Medikondur mandal of the district yesterday, Deputy Superintendent of Police Srinivasarao said.   

Two students - Guthi Kalyan (19) and V K Sairam (19) - both from Turlapadu village in Prakasam district, died on the spot in the mishap, police said.       

Their friend Syed Rehman (20) and autorickshaw driver Pilli Esob (32) died later at Guntur General Hospital.

The relatives of the deceased staged a protest alleging that the victims died because of delay in being provided medical help by the hospital staff.       

Hospital Superintendent Rajunaidu assured the family members that an inquiry will be held in the matter.
