Recalling those horrific moments when the car went out of control, Jayakumar said, that Kiran, who was driving the car, lost control of the vehicle after hitting a hump.
“Since there were eight of us in the car, some of us were sitting on each others’ laps. When it crashed into a tree, the airbags did not open and Kiran and Charles died on the spot. I had not informed my parents about going out with Kiran. We did not think that the trip would end like this. Three of them were my best friends and I am missing them,” Jayakumar said.
College authorities told Express the accident was very unfortunate and they were extending their support to the bereaved parents.
