GUNTUR: Tadikonda MLA Undavalli Sridevi, a doctor by profession, offered first-aid treatment to road accident victims at Pedakakani on Vijayawada-Chennai National Highway-16. While one of them died on the spot, the other was shifted to hospital.

Sridevi, who was on her way to Guntur, stopped when she saw the two men and helped them. A video of her treating the injured went viral on social media.
