Residents and road users traveling through Kujama, the headquarter of Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State were on Friday allegedly exposed to a gory sight as heavy duty truck was said to have crushed to death three people.
An eye witness, who is an aged woman in her seventies said that the victims were all on a motorcycle before the unfortunate incident occurred.
She explained that she was in another vehicle when she witnessed the horror unfold as the truck hit the bike carrying the victims, with all of them falling as a result of the impact.
“The most confusing part of it is that after hitting them, maybe they would have survived, but the driver turned round, came back and crushed them before zooming off,” she narrated.
The eyewitness who did not disclose her name said that those who witnessed the incident were left in shock and could not even move to accost the driver or memorise details of the truck.
“When I saw how badly mutilated the bodies of the victims were, I was sweating profusely and people around assisted in taking off my jacket and a little first aid before I came back to my senses,” she recalled.
AUTHENTIC News Daily learnt that it took the intervention of elders and opinion leaders to prevent the aggrieved youth of the community from blocking the ever busy Kaduna-Kachia highway in protesting the action of the hit and run driver.
Kujama is located few kilometers to Kaduna City and is in one of the metropolitan local government areas.
