In a tragic road mishap, Andhra Pradesh Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister Dr P Narayan’s son Nishith Narayan and his friend were killed when their car crashed into a metro pillar in the Jubilee Hills area in Hyderabad. As per PTI reports, the accident took place at around 3 am on Wednesday when the SUV driven by minister’s son hit the pillar. Speaking to Indian Express, the state police has said that it was a very high-speed crash as the front portion of the white Mercedes Benz SUV was totally crushed due to the impact. The police also stated that  airbags were installed in the car but were of no use.

Based on the preliminary investigation it came to light that Nishith was driving at a very high speed and was allegedly in an inebriated condition, the DCP A Venkateshwar Rao told PTI. Nishith and his friend died on the spot, Rao said. The metro pillar was constructed for the ongoing Metro rail project in the Jubilee Hills area, he said and added that further investigation into the incident is underway.

As per an Indian Express report, Nishith along with his friend Raja Ravi Chandra apparently were out on a late night drive after heavy showers and high speed winds hit the city. The two of them were waiting at a friend’s house and left soon after the water-logging went down to minimal. As per police, the accident happened near a bend on the Jubilee Hills 36 between Peddamma temple and Madhapur where Nishith’s SUV rammed into metro pillar number 9. However, it is still not clear about who was driving the car at the time of accident and police are also investigating if late night storm caused the mishap.

Speaking to Indian Express, a police official associate with the case said, “A watchman sleeping nearby told us that he woke up when he heard a big noise between 2 -2:30 am and found that the SUV had hit the pillar. The car must have been travelling at high speed because due to the impact, chips of concrete came off the solid metro rail pillar.”
