GHAZIABAD - A 16-year old girl, returning home from school, was crushed to death by a truck Tuesday afternoon in the Aryanagar area of the city, police said.
“Sakshi Tyagi, a student of class 11th, was hit by the truck on the Delhi-Meerut road. We have arrested the driver, and the girl’s body has been sent for autopsy,” police said.
The accident happened at 2:00 p.m. on the busy T-junction of Delhi-Meerut road. The girl was crossing the road on her cycle, when the truck hit the cycle and sped away.
Passers-by rushed the girl to a local hospital, where she was declared brought dead.
