    A software engineer died and his two friends were hurt in a road accident in Hyderabad. They were using Google Maps to find their way after getting lost. The accident happened on PVNR Expressway when the trio was returning on their motorbike from a trip around the city. The engineer who died was MHNVS Charan. He was 22 and worked for a leading IT firm in Hyderabad. His two friends were riding on the back of the bike.

    Charan and his friends were staying at a nearby township. On the weekend, nine friends on three motorbikes had come to the city. They went to see the new Secretariat and recently installed statue of Ambedkar. After spending some time at Tank Bund, they decided to go to Cable Bridge. They opened Google Maps on their phones to get directions because they were not familiar with the city. Charan headed towards Mehdipatnam and took the PVNR Expressway without realizing that two-wheelers were not allowed on this stretch.

    After covering two to three kilometers on the Expressway, they realized that they were heading in the wrong direction. Charan turned his bike to get down through a ramp at Pillar Number 82. However, a car hit the bike and Charan was critically injured. He was taken to a private hospital but died on Sunday. His two friends sustained minor injuries.

    The PVNR Expressway is 11.6 km long and connects the city to Rajiv Gandhi International Airport. Two-wheelers, three-wheelers, and heavy vehicles are not allowed on this stretch.
