Tipper driver escapes death


A tipper truck driver, Abdallah Hussein, 36, on Wednesday escaped death narrowly when the vehicle overturned while tipping off chippings in Ho.

Hussein who became dazed momentarily crept out of the driver's compartment after the vehicle turned upside down amidst shouts from passers by.

After he regained consciousness and took some water he said that the accident occurred due to inability to balance the bucket of the tipper containing the chippings.

He praised Allah for not being crushed behind the drivers seat.

An eyewitness,Madam Esenam, a beans seller said that the accident was awful and that it was only God who saved Hussein from being trapped to death.
