The injury deals a serious blow to the 49ers (1-2), who had planned their rebuild around Garoppolo and now must turn again to C.J. The Niners struggled with Beathard and Brian Hoyer last season before the midseason addition of Garoppolo changed their fortunes.

Balabhaskar, wife Lakshmi and driver Arjun have been admitted to a hospital in the city with critical injuries.

She was declared dead soon after being rushed to a private hospital by a highway patrol unit.

Balabhaskar is a popular violinist and the musician enjoys a huge fan base. He started his career at the age of 12 and was the youngest composer who has worked in the Malayalam industry. He is well known for creating the fusion between the folk and south music.
