The people of Ndubia community of Izzi local government area of Ebonyi state were thrown into mourning Wednesday when a yet to be identified pregnant woman and her child were crushed to death by a speeding trailer.

It was gathered that the incident occurred when the deceased were on their way to a nearby market to sell cassava to enable her foot the hospital bill of her sick child.

It was gathered that the deceased, a middle aged woman whose child has been sick for few days now had been battling to save the life of the little child.

This, The Advocate learnt, forced her to harvest some of her crops to raise money for the medication. 

According to an eyewitness, the driver of the trailer who was said to be on a top speed could not control the heavy duty vehicle on sighting the woman as the truck crushed them to death. 

The driver was said to have immediately after the accident  ran to a nearby police station to avoid a mob action from the sympathetic villagers.

Some of the residents of the area, called on relevant authorities to ensure that there are speed bumps in some of the newly constructed roads in the rural areas as most drivers now take advantage of the good road to over speed.

They suggested that the speed bump would go a long way to save the lives of the rural dwellers who are not yet to understand the danger posed by the busy highway in the rural settlement.
