22 July 2015, 15:34

Ekiti - A 16-year-old meat seller met his demise during the early hours of this morning when he was crushed to death by a commercial truck laden with bottled drinks, Naij reports.

The accident, which was allegedly caused by over speeding, took place when the motorcyclist driving the bike that the deceased was on allegedly tried to overtake the truck in an attempt to beat the morning rush.

Due to miscalculation, the motorcyclist allegedly swerved under the rear tyre of the truck.
