A road accident that occurred at Nteje in Anambra State in the night of Saturday killed two persons, our correspondent gathered in Awka.
Margaret Onabe, the state command’s sector public education officer of the Federal Road Safety Corps, told newsmen that the crash involved a truck with registration number FKJ22XJ and a Toyota Hiace bus with registration number GDD68ZP.
According to her, a total number of 12 persons, compromising eight male adults and four female adults, were involved, with five of them sustaining varying degrees of injuries.
She said, “The probable cause of the crash was road obstruction and excessive speed.”
She quoted an eyewitness saying: “The truck developed fault and was abandoned by the driver after placing a caution sign at the front and rear.
“The bus driver was on speed and rammed into the truck from the rear.”
The sector commander, FRSC, Anambra State, Mr Adeoye Irelewuyi, commiserated with the families of the dead and wished the injured quick recovery.
He also warned motorists to desist from execessive speeding and always keep to the recommended speed limit.
