A 27-year-old man of Debe was crushed to death by a 20-tonne Mack truck on June 17.

Ryan Sookoo, of Cuchawan Trace, was crossing the SS Erin Road, Debe when he reportedly walked into the truck around 2.10 pm.

An interim police report said the action caused Sookoo to go under the left back wheel of the truck and he was run over.

Sgt Ramsumair and PC Roopan responded and interviewed the 48-year-old driver of Mohess Village, Penal. PC Roopan also administered a breathalyser test on the driver, recording a reading of zero per cent.

W/Cpl St John from the San Fernando police station and CSI W/Cpl Charles processed the scene. DMO Dr Benny also examined the body and ordered its removal to a funeral home pending a post-mortem at the Forensic Science Centre.

St John is continuing enquiries.
