Another woman who narrowly escaped death said she had to do a big dive in her bid to avoid being crushed by the truck.

“As soon as I noticed the speed with which the driver was coming, I decided to jump to the other side of my store; if not I would have been dead by now.”

Report says that the skulls of the pupils were ripped open, while the body of the woman killed was torn into pieces.
