Driver Abandons Accident Victim To Die On Tarmac
March 14, 2011 § 1 Comment
A man, whose only name The Post got as Amanjock, was reportedly abandoned by a hit-and-run driver in a white Mercedes, at check point, Molyko Buea, March 8. The Post gathered that Amanjock, about 35, who was at the peak of celebrations marking the International Day of the Woman, at late night, was staggering on the highway with a bottle of beer, when the speeding vehicle hit him and vanished.
Eyewitnesses told The Post that the victim lay on the tarmac bleeding profusely as the crowd gathered, but no one elected to rush him to the hospital on grounds that they didn’t know him.“A Taxi driver proposed to take him to the hospital, on condition that someone else will go with him to sign that he will take care of the expenses, but, after putting the victim in his taxi and realising that nobody was willing to go with him, he removed the victim and dumped on the ground and drove off,” says Charles Enongene, one of the eye witnesses.
|Enongene said Amanjock was carried from the tarmac and placed on the middle ridge of the road that night, where he bled till he gave up the ghost. A crowd only gathered around his corpse the following morning, hoping that someone might identify him.|
Though no identification paper was found on him, a woman who was passing by claimed that she knew Amanjock in Tiko, that he was a petty trader dealing in cigarettes and candies. She said Amanjock, sometimes, behaved like a lunatic. An Ambulance from the Buea Regional Hospital Annex arrived at 8:00 am on that Wednesday morning and took the cadaver to the mortuary.
