A female student of Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma in Edo State, was crushed to death yesterday by a tipper lorry.
The unfortunate incident happened on the Uhumudumun Road in Ekpoma, Esan West Local Government Area.
Sympathisers gathered on the scene to catch a glimpse of the body and learn more about her death.
There was a gridlock, following the accident, for hours.
An eyewitness said a commercial motorcycle (Okada) carrying the woman attempted to overtake another Okada.
They were said to have collided.
The woman reportedly fell off the motorcycle and was crushed to death by the tipper.
Men of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) at the Iruekpen Division, who were on ground to ease traffic, took her body to a nearby mortuary.
