A young school girl was killed on the spot when a truck ran over her
at new bridge road in Batticaloa Friday around 7:30 a.m. police
said. An eyewitness told TamilNet that the driver was alleged to have switched seat with a passenger soon after the accident since he did not have
a valid driving license.
The victim was identified as 16-year-old Satkunam Kokila 16, a student of Vincent Girls School in Batticaloa.
Kokila was returning home after tuition class along the
Batticaloa- Trincomalee road.
