13 migrant labourers from Andhra Pradesh killed in road accident in Karnataka

Thirteen migrant labourers from Andhra Pradesh were killed and two others injured in a road accident in Karnataka on Thursday morning. The accident occurred when their speeding car hit a stationary lorry tanker on the highway near Chikballapur.

All the dead were from Gorantla mandal of Sri Sathya Sai district in Andhra Pradesh. They had gone to their native place for the Dasara festival and were returning to work when the accident occurred.

The driver of the car could not spot the tanker parked on one side due to poor visibility caused by fog. Five people died on the spot and eight others breathed their last while undergoing treatment at the Chikballapur hospital. The condition of another person is said to be critical.

Police are investigating the incident.
