It was a sad incident at Awutu Beraku in the Central Region, when a 9-year-old pupil of Awutu D/A Primary died after being crashed to death by a tipper truck on Thursday morning.
The unfortunate event happened at Akrampa junction, on the Kasoa – Winneba Highway.
An eyewitness said the deceased was crossing the busy road to school with his brother when the speeding tipper truck with registration number GR 8763-21 from Kasoa heading towards Awutu Beraku crashed him and killed him instantly.
According to some residents present at the scene, accidents rate on the stretch is high due to lack of speed ramps to force speeding vehicles to slow down.
The tipper truck driver has been detained in police custody at Awutu Beraku District Police station pending investigation.
Chief Inspector Teiko of the Awutu Beraku Police command who confirmed the incidence said, the deceased has been sent to Winneba Trauma and Specialist Hospital for autopsy.
