No fewer than six persons were yesterday feared killed, and two others severely injured in a ghastly motor accident which occurred on the Asaba – Benin expressway, just before the Asaba Airport.
Eyewitness, Felicia Ogbomo, said the accident occurred as a result of the driver’s reckless driving and over-speeding when the vehicle and another coming from the same direction rammed into each other on the expressway. It was gathered that seven vehicles were allegedly involved in the accident because of their speed and closeness while the victims were reportedly rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, FMC, Asaba, for treatment.
They were said to have given up the ghost before reaching the hospital. Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, commander in the state, Rindom Kuven, when contacted, said the accident was caused by over-speeding, adding that it resulted in heavy vehicular traffic in the early hours of the day on the expressway.
