A school boy, believed to be 10 years old, on Thursday morning met his untimely death when a speeding tipper truck hit him.

Per eyewitness account, the pupil and his younger colleague were crossing the road from Akrampa Junction, on the Winneba Highway, to the opposite direction when the accident occurred.

The eyewitness added that the truck with registration number GR 8763-21 from Kasoa heading towards Awutu Beraku failed to spot the children, and run over the now deceased.

One of them said that the younger school boy spotted the car and run off the road, but before he could alert the yet-to-be-identified deceased, it was too late.

The tipper truck crushed the head of the lad, leaving his body in a very bizarre state, the eyewitness account revealed.

Some witnesses disclosed to Adom News’ Seth Ankomah Adjei that such accidents are persistent since there are no speed ramps and road marks in the area.

They, therefore, called on highway authorities to, as a matter of urgency, come to their aid to curb the situation.
