A 23- year- old bus conductor died on the spot when a Lusaka bound Combs coach services Scania bus allegedly ran over him.
The Eastern Province Police chief explained that it is alleged that the late Victor Sichula was leaning against the door of the bus whilst it was moving and as the bus driver tried to avoid hitting into potholes the door opened pushing the bus conductor out. He said it was at this moment that the rear left wheels run-over him leaving him dead.
Mr. Mundene wondered why the deceased decided to stand by the door side when the bus was not full as it had only 34 passengers on board.
He said depending on the outcome of Police investigations, the driver of the bus will be arrested and charged for the offence of dangerous driving.
