According to a report on Sakshi, a KSRTC bus was on its way to Bengaluru from Proddutur in YSR district. When the bus reached Muthyala Cheruvu in Kadiri mandal of Anantapur district, a cement lorry hit the bus in full speed.
Prem Nazir sitting in the back seat was crushed and died on the spot. Chaitanya Reddy and Sakuntala from Pulivendula in YSR district and Gangaraju from Vemala were injured and immediately taken to the government hospital. The rural police shifted the body for post-mortem and lodged a case.
