A number of factors contribute to the risk of collisions, including vehicle design, speed of operation, road design, weather, road environment, driving skills, impairment due to alcohol or drugs, and behavior, notably aggressive driving, distracted driving, speeding, and street racing.
It is said that a total of 19 people including the driver of the autorickshaw were going to Rangapuram village of Duggondi Mandal to pick red chilli crop. When the auto reached the crossing, which was identified as an accident-prone zone, a car coming in the opposite direction collided with the autorickshaw. Due to the impact of the force, the auto was completely destroyed in the mishap.
Some organizations have begun to avoid the term "accident", instead preferring to use terms such as "collision", "crash" or "incident". This is because the term "accident" implies that there is no one to blame, whereas most traffic collisions are the result of driving under the influence, excessive speed, distractions such as mobile phones, or other risky behavior.
Seven other passengers, who were injured in the accident, had been shifted to MGM Hospital for treatment. The bodies were also shifted to the same hospital for postmortem.
