Truck driver killed after log on truck hits tree, pins him to steering wheel

A truck driver was on Wednesday killed after one of the logs that he was transporting crashed through the cabin and pinned him to the steering wheel. The accident reported occurred at Wiki Creek Backdam, upper Berbice River.
The dead man has been identified was 34-year-old Andrew Jagmohan of Crabwood Creek, Corentyne Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne).
Police initial investigations revealed that the now dead man was transporting logs in motor vehicle GFF 7662 with his porter, 33-year-old Ivor Martin of Stanley Town, New Amsterdam.
However, on the day in question, the lorry was making its way up a hill when it encountered mechanical problems. As a result, the lorry started to descend thus causing one of the logs to hit a tree and due to the force, it slammed through the cabin and pinned Jagmohan to the steering wheel.
After the truck came to a halt, the porter reported pulled the injured man from the wreckage and rushed him to the Kwakwani Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The body is presently at the Kwakwani Hospital Mortuary awaiting post mortem. An investigation has been launched into the fatal accident.
