Jajpur: A truck mowed down a young woman who was out for a morning near Ketakia Chhak under Jajpur Sadar police limits on Friday. The deceased has been identified as Barsarani Jena.
Barsarani was out for a walk accompanied by her friend early on Friday morning when a concrete chips-loaded truck ran over her. The driver and helper managed to escape leaving the vehicle on the spot.
