BENGALURU: College student Jayakumar, who sustained minor injuries in a car accident on Saturday, said that he and his friends  had initially planned to go to Nandi Hills after attending classes. They had gone to college, but left without attending any class.

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.
