    Another witness noted that the car was approaching at high speed and that it had hit other people before getting to them fatally injuring one bodaboda operator.

    "I have no words for what happened here because when I looked at how that car was approaching, I was shocked. I heard that it had knocked other people and was being chased by other boda boda riders.

    "As the driver was escaping the riders trailing him, that is when he lost control and knocked our shade. When I saw it approaching I took off. When I saw the death, I got confused and went away for a while," stated the rider.

    Another person narrated in detail how the deceased was crashed noting that he had been badly disfigured.

    Several other riders who were in the shade sustained injuries.
