Tragedy struck on Friday in Owerri, Imo State capital, as a truck driver was crushed to death by his own truck as he sped along a section of Port Harcourt Road undergoing reconstruction.
The driver, who was said to be unaware of a deep hole dug across the road (since there was no caution sign on the road) by a construction company handling the road, ran into the ditch.
