No fewer than 24 adults escaped death in Wednesday’s auto crash, involving two commercial buses and a truck at Azia Junction, Ihiala in Anambra. This was confirmed by the Anambra Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) commander, Andrew Kumapayi.
Mr Kumapayi attributed the accident to speed and loss of control.
He said the vehicles included two Nissan buses, with Reg. No. ZBL429YG and Reg. No.GDD792XB, and a truck with Reg. No. SAG80XA.
Mr Kumapayi said that the 28 people – including two female children, two male children, 18 male adults and six female adults, sustained injuries.
“Witness report shows that the truck was on top speed when it rammed into the two buses picking passengers at Azia Junction.
“All the persons in the buses sustained some degree of injuries and were taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Ihiala by FRSC rescue team from Ihiala Command.”
Mr Kumapayi urged motorists to always exercise patience, avoid speed and ensure safety while driving on the road.
