HYDERABAD: Actor-politician Nandamuri Harikrishna--son of late Andhra Pradesh chief minister NT Rama Rao-- died in a road accident in Nalgonda Wednesday morning. 

The 61-year-old was driving a Toyota Fortuner from Hyderabad to Nellore when the accident happened near Anneparthy village. Two others were present with him in the SUV. They suffered injuries and are undergoing treatment. They were on their way to attend a marriage in Nellore today.

The vehicle-suspected to be overspeeding- hit the median, rolled over and collided with a vehicle coming on the opposite side and a culvert.
