A 55-year-old man who slept between two parked trucks in Peenya was crushed when a driver moved one of the trucks.

Hanumanthaiah had migrated from Raichur and was loading and unloading cement bags from the trucks. The police said Hanumanthaiah wanted to nap in the shade between two parked trucks at 9 am on Friday morning near Peenya's ESI Hospital.

The driver, not knowing that Hanumanthaiah was sleeping near the wheel, crushed him as he moved the truck out of the parking lot.

The Yeshwantpur police registered a case, seized the truck and have detained the driver for questioning.
