“We saw what happened, the man is a blind beggar who was crossing the road with the help of his daughter.

“They were almost at the centre of the road, they wanted to cross and pass through the roundabout but were very unlucky as a tipper driver crushed him on the head and he died instantly, but nothing happened to the daughter,” he said.

As of the time of filling this report, TrackNews Online reports that some tipper drivers were on ground to direct vehicular movement.
