HYDERABAD/NALGONDA:In a double tragedy, a National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) employee was crushed by an RTC bus while he was regulating traffic after an accident that claimed two lives. The incident took place on Saturday night on Hyderabad - Warangal highway near Bhongir bypass.
A Srinivas (26) and K Srisailam (31), natives of Koheda village, were heading towards Hyderabad in a car and were reportedly drunk. When the car reached the bypass, it hit a lorry.
