Security guard dies as speeding car plunges into lake off Pallavaram-Thuraipakkam Radial Road

CHENNAI: A security guard was killed after the driver of the car in which he was travelling crashed into a lake on Pallavaram-Thuraipakkam Radial Road on early Wednesday morning.

Police said the car, which was travelling at high speed, lost control and plunged into Narayanapuram lake in Pallikaranai, resulting in the fatal incident.

The car was returning to an IT firm in Siruseri after dropping off a group of techies at their homes. The security guard, Kausal Kumar (27), was providing security for the group.

The accident occurred around 2:30 am on the Radial Road in Pallavaram, when the driver of the car, Rajasekar (35), lost control of the speeding vehicle and veered off the road, crashing into the lake.
