Police in the Northern Region have arrested the driver of a truck who knocked down and killed a cyclist at the Total Fuel Station in Walewale.
The long vehicle with registration number 11LL 9166 BF was heading to Burkina Faso from Accra when he crushed the cyclist to death on Thursday September 29, 2016.
Regional correspondent Abdul Dahim said the driver lost control of the truck which was loaded with cables after scaling a speed ramp. According to him, the truck’s steering wheel developed a fault, causing it to veer off its lane. It then crushed the cyclist to death on the spot.
The Walewale Police Command has confirmed the incident while the body of the deceased, who is yet to be identified, has been deposited at the Walewale Hospital morgue. Investigations are ongoing by the police.
