In a similar but unrelated incident, a couple was dismembered beyond recognition after they were struck and run over by a truck. The deadly incident occurred on July 20, in the city of Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh, India.

The victims, 50-year-old Ravi Surya Rao and his wife, Satyavati were traveling to a family member’s home when a speeding truck came from behind and collided with their scooter.

The couple was thrown off the vehicle and to the road after which the truck wheels went over the duo instantly killing them.

Onlookers alerted the authorities and emergency responders were dispatched to the crash site. The responding officers gathered the scattered body parts of the couple and transported them to a medical examiner's office for an autopsy.

The police have registered a case and are investigating the incident. It is unclear whether the truck driver has been taken into custody.
