Mr Fredrick Yitah, a 28-year-old level 400 student of the Wa campus of the University for Development Studies (UDS) met his untimely death after he was run over by an articulator truck carrying them on a float.
The accident occurred on Thursday around 1:30pm at Kambali a suburb of Wa.
The float was organised by the students to mark the Students’ Representative Council (SRC) week celebration of the University.
The deceased who left behind a wife and a kid, was rushed to the Wa Government Hospital where he died after uncontrollable bleeding from the waist.
The flat body articulator truck was the vehicle carrying the students round during the float when the accident happened.
Some of the students who witnessed the accident told the Ghana News Agency in Wa that the deceased fell from the top of the vehicle carrying them.
The Regional MTTU urged the University Authorities and the leadership of the students to impress upon the students to be very careful and not misbehave during such events to prevent such horrible accidents.
