A four-year-old girl (name withheld) died unnecessarily after being struck by an unknown car while crossing the street.

According to Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Mrs. Effia Tenge, the victim, who was with her friends, could not keep up with the pace when crossing the road and was knocked down by a fast vehicle, killing her instantly in Kudzra, a neighborhood of Kpando-Tafi.

The deceased is claimed to have accompanied her companions on an errand on Thursday around 1730 hours, according to her.

‘Unfortunately, the motorist did not stop and left her to her fate,’ she explained.

The man suffered critical injuries, according to DSP Tenge, and was pronounced dead at the Margret Marquart Catholic Hospital in Kpando.

The deceased’s body is taken to the specified Hospital’s morgue for autopsy and preservation.
