Four persons, including a 70-year-old woman, died after a bus they were travelling in rammed a lorry at Aitipamula village in Kattangur of Nalgonda district, 80 km. from here, in the early hours of Friday. The accident took place at around 2.30 a.m. when the lorry driver suddenly applied the brakes. Both the lorry and the bus belonging to Autonagar depot of APSRTC were on their way from Hyderabad to Vijayawada, Shaligouraram Inspector Prashanth said.
