Police said three died on the spot and one succumbed to his injuries at the Guntur government general hospital.

Four engineering students were killed and three others critically injured as their speeding car hit a road divider before ramming into a truck from behind. The accident occurred in Guntur near Lalpuram on the Chilakaluripet-Guntur road.

All the seven students, aged below 20 years, were on their way to Vijayawada city to enjoy New Year's celebrations.

The deceased were identified as Dhanush, Sai Ram, Koteswara Rao and Kapoor. Except for Kapoor, the others were from Guntur town.
 
All the youths were second-year students at the RVR Engineering College on Guntur outskirts. One of the students brought a car to enjoy New Year's Eve. They had plans to go to Bhavani Island in river Krishna between Guntur and Vijayawada where their other friends were organizing a New Year's party. College principal K Srinivasa Rao, who rushed to the spot, said the boys had left the college around 11 am.
