A nine-year-old girl was Thursday crushed to death at Afor ?Nkpo- New Tarzan axis, near Onitsha, Anambra State by a liquor haulage van.

The incident also left 24 others seriously injured.

According to Vanguard, the deceased was said to be returning from an errand when she was hit by the vehicle.


Her remains had since been deposited at Eyi Enu Hospital Mortuary, Ogidi.

Eyewitness said the lorry driver was shouting from afar to alert people that his breaks were faulty, only for the vehicle to crash into a spot where people were gathered, killing the girl on the spot.

The eyewitness said, ?The driver could not control the situation and he immediately jumped out alongside the conductor.

?The lorry hit one L300; smashed the little girl and rammed into a hair-dressing saloon.?


The lorry also trapped an aged man under its tyre, while the owner of the hair dressing saloon managed to run away, leaving her five-year-old child behind.
