A five-year old boy died on the spot in a gory accident which saw his head severed, early Monday, at Nyankyerenease in Kumasi.
The tragedy has the mother of the victim yet to be identified hospitalized, after she collapsed upon hearing news of her child’s death.
Eye-witnesses say the mother had sent the deceased on an errand to buy porridge when the vehicle knocked him down.
The accident occurred around 7 a.m at the Complex Junction during a time Kumasi was experiencing a heavy down pour.
Curious onlookers defied the heavy downpour to troop to the scene only to find the lifeless but headless body of the boy.
An eyewitness, Kwame Peter told Nhyira FM the severed head could not be found, amid speculation that it may have been carried downstream along a nearby drain by rain water.
Though the driver could not immediately be traced, the vehicle is parked at the scene.
Police are however yet to comment on the incident.
