Youngster crushed to death by army truck
In an unfortunate accident in the Gorakhpur region of Uttar Pradesh, 21-year-old Ashish lost his life after being crushed to death by an army truck.
The incident occurred early this week when Ashish who was gearing-up for his civil services examination was travelling around the cantonment region in his bicycle to reach his classes. It was here that he was hit by a car. Losing balance almost immediately, he fell face down ahead of the army truck.
Unable to halt the truck at the last minute, Ashish was crushed to death within minutes of the occurrence. The driver Manvir Singh who has been driving for the army for over 21 years is now in custody.
Devastated over the accident, the driver justified there wasn’t much he could have done to save the youngster. The family on the other hand faced a greater tragedy as Ashish’s father had met with an accident just a month back resulting in a complete bed-ridden state.
The family is now left with just the older son Anand Pandey to cater for the sick father.
