Ba Man Dies In Tragic Accident

A 23 year old of man of Ba is the latest victim in a tragic accident.

A Police report said the victim was driving a truck conveying pine logs when he allegedly lost control of the vehicle causing it to veer off the road. As a result the binding chain broke causing the pine logs to fall off the truck.

Due to this the victim also jumped off the truck where unfortunately the pine logs fell on him where he died instantly.

A post mortem will be conducted to determine the cause of death.

It has also been discovered that the victim did not have the prescribed driver’s license to be driving a heavy goods vehicle.

This is a serious concern and investigators are looking into the issue of employers’ responsibility in allowing the victim to drive the heavy goods truck when he did not have the prescribed license.

There are specialized skills involved in the handling of heavy goods vehicle and this is something that should not be taken lightly.

Therefore, reminders especially to employers, to ensure all drivers have the proper prescribed legal license to drive and operate heavy machineries. Failure to do so not only is against the law but endangers the life of the driver and other innocent bystanders.
