Hyderabad: In yet another incident of late-night rash and reckless driving, a car went out of control and hit a man, killing him on the spot in Miyapur here on Wednesday.

The incident occurred around 1 am when Satish, who is driving the car bearing number AP 09 BS 5786, proceeding from Allwyn Colony crossroads towards Madhapur, lost control of the wheel and ran over one Mohammed Afsar, who was waiting near a roadside pan shop close to the Hafeezpet flyover.

Afsar, who worked as the correspondent of a private school in Sangareddy district, suffered fatal injuries and though he was immediately shifted to a nearby private hospital, doctors declared him dead.

The car, after hitting Afsar, went on to hit another car and two motorcycles that were parked a few metres ahead. The vehicles were partially damaged. The Miyapur police said a preliminary investigation revealed that Satish, a construction contractor, was drunk.

“We have booked a case for negligence causing death and arrested him,” police said. He was produced before a court which remanded him in judicial custody.
