Hyderabad, November 12
In a tragic incident, a Hyderabad girl reportedly died in a car accident at Austin, Texas. The girl passed away on November 7, according to her family, here.
The girl, Neha Reddy Maddika, was involved in a car collision between two vehicles around 3 am, and later, she died, according to Neha’s friend Priyanka.
Taking to the microblogging website, the Austin-Travis Country Emergency Medical Services said: “Four adults were taken to the hospital, following a crash in South Austin on Saturday morning. The scene at the intersection of South 1st Street, and West Mary Street.”
The family revealed that Priyanka posted on the crowdfunding platform GoFundMe, trying to raise money to send her body back to Hyderabad. “Very talkative, energetic, hard-working, motivated, always cared about others,” reads the post on the crowdfunding platform.
“She tried very hard to fight for her life, but unfortunately she had a brain injury during the incident. She does not have any immediate family in the United States, her family is in India (Hyderabad, Telangana, India). We are organizing this fund to initiate the last rites of Neha Reddy, and also sending her mortal remains back home,” Priyanka’s post reads.
Tragically, Neha’s father, Vijaya Bhaskar Reddy, also passed away six months ago.
According to the details shared by first responders, “two patients were breifly pinned in their car following a collision with another vehicle. One person was transported to Dell Seton Medical Center with critical, life-threatening injuries. Two patients were taken to St. David’s South Austin Medical Center with potentially serious injuries. The final patient is being treated at Dell Seton Medical Center with potentially serious, but not expected to be life-threatening injuries”.
