A baby has been crushed to death at the CBN Roundabout in Bauchi. The incident happened when the tricycle she had been travelling in with her mother was trying to overtake the tanker.
Paul Guar, the Sector Head of Operations, Federal Road Safety Corps in Bauchi said the baby fell out of the tricycle and was crushed to death by the tanker. He said the tricycle had hit one of the tires of the tanker and the resulting impact had thrown the baby off her mum’s lap and onto the road before being crushed by the tanker.
He said the baby was rushed to a specialist hospital where she was confirmed dead.
Kamal Abubakar, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Bauchi State Command, said the tanker driver and the tricycle rider had been arrested.
