The car driver accelerated and did not wear a helmet while the pedestrian appeared to be crossing the street without paying attention to the traffic, said Jeedimetla Police Inspector K Balaraju.
While the pedestrian identified as Shankaraiah suffered minor injuries, Shiva Sai Goud, an undergraduate student, is believed to have had severe head injuries and is in critical condition.
The incident was recorded with CCTV cameras along the street. One case has been registered by the Jeedimetla police and is under investigation. Jeedimetla police said the case was booked against both of them because of their negligence.
The inspector added: “One case has been recorded against both of them. The pedestrian was inattentive and crossed without observing either side, while the driver was not wearing a helmet and was driving too fast.”
Police said they are both being treated at a private hospital in the city.
In early January, a tractor was hit by an overturning truck in Madhira from Khammam.
Later, in a similar incident, five family members and a motorist died in a traffic accident after a truck hit their car from behind.
