According to Villupuram police, the vehicle bearing the registration number TN-02-CC-1000 rammed into the divider at Keezhputhupattu village on the East Coast Road, near Kottakuppam at the district’s border. “When the vehicle was coming at a high speed, a cow suddenly crossed the road. They tried to avoid hitting the cow and lost balance,” a release from the Villupuram district police said.

While the co-passenger, K Vedha Vikash (21), sustained grievous injuries, Rakesh died on the spot when the vehicle hit on a road divider. Both were taken to the Puducherry Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS). The police are conducting further probe into the incident.
