A truck with a faulty break was said to have crushed a nine-year-old on Thursday at Afor–Nkpo, in New Tarzan axis, Onitsha in Anambra State, by a trailer. About 24 other people were injured. Her corpse was deposited at Eyi Enu Hospital Mortuary, Ogidi.
An eyewitness said the driver shouted to alert people of his faulty break though, but it didn’t prevent the situation from happening. The truck eventually crushed the girl, seized another under its tyre, before ramming into a hair-dressing saloon.
