CHAMARAJNAGAR: Four members of a family, including a seven-year-old girl, were killed and another injured in a road accident near Chikkahole Cross in Chamarajnagar on Monday.
The family from T Narasipur taluk was returning in a car from a pilgrimage in Tamil Nadu when it rammed a lorry parked on the roadside around 6 am.
While Chidananda (52), Siddaraju (64) and Shreyas (32) died on the spot, Poorvika (7), who sustained severe head injuries, succumbed at the government hospital later in the day.
Suresh, who was critically injured in the accident, is undergoing treatment at the government hospital in Chamarajnagar.
A source said the family had gone on a five-day trip to visit various temples in Tamil Nadu.
It is said that Shreyas, who drove the car all night, might not have noticed the lorry because of the dense fog in the morning.
