A techie from Telangana was killed in road accident as he was cycling in Miami in the United States earlier this week.

35-year-old Narahari Bharath Reddy hailed from Karimnagar, and was reported to be the younger son of Progressive Recognised Teachers’ Union State leader Narahari Laxma Reddy.

He had been residing in the United States since 2006, and was practicing for a cycling competition when a speeding truck hit him, his friends said. He was rushed to the hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

According to reports, Reddy was preparing for the Dolphines Cancer Challenge race to be held next month, and had completed his master’s degree from the University of Bridgeport.

"It is with profound sadness that I must inform all of you that we have lost a member of our IT family this weekend. Bharath Reddy Narahari, Reddy as we all knew him and loved him by was involved in an accident, which tragically took his life too soon,” Allen Montgomery, the director of systems and development for Baptist Health, where Bharath was working, was quoted as saying.

While the accident happened on Saturday, the parents were not informed about it immediately.

Bharath’s body is being shifted to his house back in India and the funeral is expected to be held on Friday.

In December last year, a Telangana techie was mowed down by a light rail train in Santa Clara, USA on December 14. He succumbed to his injuries while being taken to the hospital.

“The train that struck the pedestrian was shut down and about 100 passengers were removed and transferred onto another train,” said Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority Brandi Childress.

Krishna, a native of Karimnagar, was survived by a wife and two daughters. He had moved to the United States about 10 years ago, and had been working with a software company.
