Writhing in pains, an elderly man bemoaned his fate after being run over by a hit-and-run driver.The accident occurred along the Palmgrove/Shyllon axis of Ikorodo Road, Lagos last Sunday night.The man, simply identified as Baba Ibeji, who resides in Ilupeju, was hit as he dashed across the road.After being moved from the accident scene by sympathisers, he groaned in pains, urging sympathisers to alert his wife and children.Oh God, how have I offended you to deserve this punishment' Can somebody help me call my wife and children' This is too much for me, he pleaded as he handed over his phone to a sympathiser.An eyewitness told The Nation: The old man was crossing the highway from Somolu to this place (Shyllon Junction) on his way back home. He had almost left the highway when the vehicle veered off his lane and hit him callously. I think the driver did it deliberately and sped off.Other passersby joined me to help him off the spot as he could no longer walk. His legs were badly smashed. It is really painful and unfortunate that the old man is paying for not using the pedestrian bridge.Following the arrival of his son, men of the Ilupeju Police Station who were on patrol, conveyed him to the National Orthopaedic Hospital Igbobi (NOHI) in Yaba.The post Hit-and-run driver crushes mans legs appeared first on The Nation.]]> Click here to read full news..
