In a populous city like Dhaka a street accident is a daily incident. But last afternoon I saw is accident which really shocked me much. There was a good number of traffic on the road. I was on my way home from school and looking for a chance to cross the Sadarghat crossing. A young boy was to cross the road. He suddenly stepped on the street and a bus running at a high speed from Patuatuly ran over him. The driver tried earnestly to stop the bus but failed. I along with other people ran to the spot at once and saw that the boy was smashed. The traffic police arrested the bus driver. Soon an ambulance came and took away the dead body of the boy.
