Many locals came to the scene of the tragedy, were observed crying.
When the driver's buddy realized there was an accident on the horizon, he was able to jump off the truck in time.
Observers at the scene ordered the dead to exit the car, but he persisted on moving to the outside lane of the road to stop the logs from falling.
He attempted to jump off, but when he realized he wouldn't succeed, he was stopped by one of the longest logs.
Before bystanders could free him from the entrapped wood, he passed away instantaneously.
In anticipation of more inquiries, the deceased's body has since been left at the Goaso Municipal Hospital with the police.
