Car Crushes Man To Death While Watching Football Match

There was pandemonium at a popular viewing
centre along Sani Abacha Road in Yenagoa, Bayelsa
State capital in the early hours of yesterday, August
25, when a 26-year-old man was crushed to death
while watching the Super Falconets of Nigeria and
Germany Under-20 Female World Cup final.
The incident occurred at about 1.30 a.m while he
was watching the match alongside other viewers
who scampered for safety.
Most of the eyewitnesses could not explain how
the driver of the Honda Sports Utility Van, SUV
crashed into the crowd of football fans and fun
seekers in the bar.
It was gathered by Vanguard that the driver of the
car rammed into the crowd as he attempted to
drive out of the car wash section of the bar where
the vehicle was parked.
“The driver must have stepped fully on the
accelerator and drove straight at us. I and some
other dived out of his path but the boy was
unlucky. The vehicle crushed him and dragged him
into the club,” an eyewitness said.
