In a tragic incident, a pregnant lady died after the car in which she was travelling along with her husband, veered off the road on the Outer Ring Road near Manasi Nagar here yesterday afternoon.

The unfortunate victim of the tragedy has been identified as Roopa (37), wife of Madhusudhan, a resident of Raghavendranagar in city.

Madhusudhan told SOM that after seeing the site, he and his wife were returning home on the Ring Road and took a ‘U’ turn to join the service road. As there was a vehicle coming from the opposite direction, Madhusudhan said that he moved the car to his left and the left side wheel of the car went into a ditch and car fell off the service road about  8 to 10 ft. below, resulting in his pregnant wife going for a shock falling unconscious.
