“Our friend succumbed to the injuries caused by a car accident last night, everything happened in the blink of an eye. We had an initial impact with an unattended vehicle on the highway, causing our airbags to deploy. We made a stop and walked to the side of the road. Meanwhile, to call the police, our friend Prudhvi approached our crashed car to reach for the phone and in the darkness of the night, an incoming vehicle hit him and ran away. While all of this happened, his wife and we (friends) were looking around for him. Prudhvi was declared spot dead by the police on the scene (who arrived after the crash),” reads the page.
