An unidentified commercial motorcyclist was crushed to death on Monday by a speeding vehicle, around New Farm area of Sapele Local Government Area of Delta State.
It was also gathered that a female passenger he was carrying also sustained injury in the accident, which occurred around 8.00am.
The okada man was said to have died on the spot, while the passenger was conveyed to a hospital.
According to reports, the vehicle was an unmarked Mercedes Benz GLK.
“The accident happened right in my presence. The driver of the GLK was on speed and he crushed the Okada man and the passenger he was carrying to farm from behind.
“The Okada man died on the spot while the GLK driver took the injured passenger to a hospital. We thought both occupants of the motorcycle were dead. I doubt if the woman would make it, except by the grace of God,” an eyewitness said.
Onome Onovwakpoyeya, the Delta State police command spokesperson, confirmed the accident, saying:
“It was fatal. Somebody died, but I am yet to get full report.”
