The deceased is identified as a cleaner of the truck named Vasanth Kumar (25) who was basically from Gadag, residing in Shikaripura of Shivamogga district.

The traffic police had signaled the truck driver to stop the truck and put it aside to inspect the load.

Responding to this, the driver took the truck to the side of the National Highway 66.

As the truck was parked on a concrete slab which was newly put on the drain, the concrete slab could not withstand the wait and broke, because of which the truck toppled.

At the same time, cleaner Vasanth was standing beside the truck and unfortunately, the truck fell on him

Vasanth was immediately rushed to the nearby Yenepoya Hospital located in Deralakatte.

In a couple of minutes of treatment, the doctors declared him dead.

According to the public, the truck driver was found completely nervous and was not aware of where he had parked the vehicle.

Meanwhile, a large group of people, passersby and the nearby residents gathered at the spot and vented out ire on the traffic police.

People blocked NH 66 for about 30 minutes protesting against the police administration for their careless behaviour.

The traffic police managed to pacify the protestors after talking to them.

For a short period, a traffic congestion was observed.
