Five men who were job hunting in Chennai died after the car in which they travelled rammed into a parked lorry at Peringalathur in Chennai during the early morning hours of Sunday.
The deceased were identified as Raja Harris and Naveen, residents of Mettur, Ajay, resident of Trichy, Rahul, a resident of Pudukottai and Aravind Shankar, a resident of Chennai. The youth were waiting for the next round of job interview, and decided to spend the time by shopping and going on a drive on GST road.
While traveling near Perungulathur, Naveen, who was driving the SUV, lost control of the vehicle, reportedly due to speeding. The car spun out of control and hit a parked truck on the roadside and went under it, getting completely crushed.
After struggling for nearly two hours, the rescue team pulled out the passengers, only to find them all dead. Officials also stated that, based on initial findings, the five men were seen not wearing seatbelts, which could have saved their lives.
