Tipper crushes blind man to death in Edo

A tipper driver reportedly crushed to death one beggar who was about crossing the Benin-Auchi road to the opposite side, around the by-pass in the early hours of Saturday.

The daughter who was crossing his father escaped as she was a little bit ahead.

“We saw what happened, the man is a blind beggar who was crossing the road with the help of his daughter.

“They were almost at the centre of the road, they wanted to cross and pass through the roundabout but were very unlucky as a tipper driver crushed him on the head and he died instantly, but nothing happened to the daughter,” an eyewitness said.

The dead beggar has been evacuated to a nearby mortuary.
