A woman and her 11-month-old daughter died and three from their family suffered injuries when the car they were travelling in allegedly crashed into an unidentified vehicle on Nehru Outer Ring Road under Abdullapurmet police station limits here on Sunday morning.

The victims were going to the temple town of Yadadri from Bengaluru when the accident took place. When the car reached Koheda, between Bonguloor and Peddaamberpet, around 6.45 a.m., Ravi, who was behind the wheel, lost control and ran into the vehicle moving in the same direction. As a result, Triveni (26) and her daughter Trishika died on the spot, Inspector V. Swamy said.

Ravi and other passengers Ramadevi (62) and Narsimha Murty (64) suffered injuries and were rushed to the nearby hospital.

A case was registered and police are analysing the video footage of surveillance cameras on the stretch to identify the vehicle.
