Four members of a family were seriously injured when the motorcycle they were travelling on fell into a gorge while negotiating a steep curve on the Boyakonta hillock temple road at Chowdepalle mandal, 70 km from here, on Friday.
According to information, Ramana Reddy, 45, a resident of Tirupati, along with his wife Saroja, children Harika and Santosh Reddy, had darshan of Goddess Boyakonda Gangamma atop the hillock and was coming down the ghat road when the vehicle lost control and dived into a gorge.
