A 42-year-old man died after he was run over by a truck he had disembarked in Kalumbila District.
According to North-Western Province Police Commissioner Hudson Namachila, the deceased has been identified as Prince Samalesu.
Samalesu had disembarked the vehicle but then went to look for a bag left between the trailers. That’s when the driver of the truck ran over him without noticing it.
“As he was still in between the trailers, the driver drove off and was run over by the trailer wheels. The driver came to know about it when he reached his destination and expressed ignorance over the happenings.”
Samalesu sustained a crushed head, fractured legs and a cut on the stomach dying on the spot.
The body of Samalesu has been transported to Lumwana First Level hospital mortuary.
