It was a black Friday at the early hour of today when a truck driver crushed a keke rider (tricycle) to death along Airport road in Warri South local government of Delta state.
It was such a gory sight to behold, prompting sympathizers to threaten to lynch the truck driver to death.
The truck driver, however, absconded the scene.
The sister of the keke rider was in tears as she saw the crushed skull of the deceased before it was covered.
Speaking to newsmen on the incident, the Delta coordinator of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Dickson Amromarhe blamed the accident on the recklessness of commercial tricycle riders.
A also appealed to truck drivers to be careful and ensure they check their braked and lights before hitting the road in the morning.
It should be recalled that cases of accidents involving tricycles and trucks are now a regular occurrence on the airport road.
This could be attributed to the early morning rush and the fact that Delta traffic managers are not usually on the road to control traffic till 8 am.
