Bus ploughs into divider, kills one
Even dividers are no longer safe for pedestrians. Mojammel Haque, 28, was standing on a divider waiting for the traffic to clear before crossing the road when a bus ploughed into the divider killing him almost instantly yesterday.
The accident occurred near Matsya Bhaban in the capital.
Mojammel, a junior officer of Premier Bank, was going to his office with his colleague Syeduzzaman.
Syeduzzaman said, “I saw a bus coming towards us from Shahbagh at a very high speed. Before we realised what was going on, the bus slammed into Mojammel while I instinctively jumped away.” He said Mojammel was declared dead at Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
Police seized the bus but the driver and his helper managed to flee.
