‘La negra’ as they knew her, was bleating and when the traffic light turned green to give way to the vehicles, she ran and sat in the tanker truck. Meters ahead she slipped.
On Avenida del Llano in Villavicencio a tragedy occurred that left a street dweller dead, and a tanker truck driver in trouble, because he ended up run over.
A video reveals when the woman, known in the area, was dancing on the platform, and on the high-traffic road, a tanker truck was waiting for the traffic light to change.
‘La negra’ as they knew her, was bleating and when the traffic light turned green to give way to the vehicles, she crossed the street and sat on the external tubes of the cargo truck.
The tanker truck started, she was sitting on the protective railings and meters later in a braking movement, she slipped and fell to the ground, the rear tires ran over her.
He died on the spot.
The driver did not know that he was carrying the particular passenger.
Many regretted that no other drivers or passengers on the road had not warned them of the dangerous maneuver by the street dweller.
The driver was transferred to the URI, although up to now there has been no report that he has been captured, but he had to make a statement, and the truck was immobilized.
Of the woman, until now no real identity is known.
“She left happy as always,” said those who knew her.
In the area they pointed out that she was known and used to cross the street in the middle of heavy traffic or ‘hang’ from vehicles. On several occasions they had made her go down.
The last moments of the woman’s life:
Faced with this type of imprudence, drivers ask the other road actors to warn, “give a signal”.
Stowaways and reckless
Hanging from moving vehicles is a recurring practice on the country’s highways and city roads. Truckers have reported that they have had incidents that put them, stowaways, and other drivers and passengers on the road at risk.
“They go up without permission,” they denounce and also, when they ask them to get off, “they are rude and aggressive.”
Before braking, curves, a crash are at risk; they have fallen, there have already been deaths.
