Truck crushes man to death

The wrapped body of Stanley Roach about to be taken away by the hearse.

A man was crushed to death by a truck Saturday afternoon on the Rupert Craig Highway, Kitty, Georgetown.

He has been identified as Stanley Roach. Neither his age nor his address was immediately available. His body was taken to the Lyken Funeral Parlour for an autopsy expected to be conducted later this week.

Eyewitnesses said the man’s head was crushed.

Police were investigating reports that the truck driver was listening to music through a pair of earphones and might not have heard when he struck down Roach who was standing behind the vehicle.
