Three members of a family tragically lost their lives in a fatal accident on the Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway near Kempegowdanadoddi in Ramanagara, India. The incident occurred on Saturday morning at approximately 8 a.m. when their van collided with a lorry.

The family members were on their way from Peenya to Srirangapatna to perform rituals following the recent death of a relative.
