A vulcaniser, simply identified as Bolaji, was killed on Saturday after stray tyres from an articulated vehicle knocked him down in front of his vulcaniser stand, at Fakunle Area, Osogbo, Osun.



It was reported that the accident, which occurred at about 7 am, left many sympathisers traumatised, as the head of the deceased was reportedly broken by the impact of the tyres.



An eyewitness, who was lucky to have escaped being knocked down by the tyres, explained that the two tyres, attached to a rim, bounced and knocked down the vulcaniser, who was standing in front of him.



He said the tyres later bounced off, after hitting the vulcaniser, to knock down a woman that was selling food close to the vulcaniser and her daughter.

“I and my friend Murphy were discussing with the vulcaniser, where he was brushing his teeth with a chewing stick, before a woman that was traveling to Ore/Ondo called him for direction.

“It was while giving direction to the woman that the tyres flew off from the vehicle, knocked him down and killed him instantly.

“If he had not gone to attend to the woman, he would not have been hit by the tyres,” he said.

However, the witness and other commercial motorcyclists later chased after the trailer driver, who veered into Ataoja Police Station in Osogbo after sensing danger.
