The person died on the spot, said sources.
The deceased has been identified as 49-year-old Golak Basumatary.
He was a resident of Bareigaon in Tamulpur.
Basumatary was an employee of the Ghograpar rural development block, according to sources.
The road mishap occurred when Golak Basumatary was returning home from his office at around 2 pm on Sunday on his scooty (AS-28-7253).
“Basumatary died on the spot as a dumper (AS-25-DC-4831), which was moving in the same direction, hit his scooty on the road at Goreswar Chowk near his home and ran over him,” said sources.
The incident created a sensation in the entire Tamulpur area.
The people in the area said many such road mishaps have taken place in the area due to reckless driving by the dumper drivers.
The citizens once again raised voice for taking stringent measures against the careless dumper drivers.
