The deceased were identified as S Sabari Balamurugan (25) from Pooluvapatti, V Praveen (24), A Anand (26) from Chettipalayam and P Balamurugan (23) from Prakash Nagar. They were all working in a textile firm.
The four were returning after work on a single two-wheeler on Perumanallur-Coimbatore National Highways when they hit a lorry parked near Rakkiapatti around 2 am. The goods-laden lorry bound to Kerala from Andhra Pradesh was halted due to a snag.
In the impact, Sabari Balamurugan and Praveen died on the spot, while Anand and Balamurugan were rushed to Avinashi Government Hospital, where they succumbed to injuries.
The Perumanallur police have registered a case and further inquiries are on to know if the deceased were drunk.
