Four died in Abia auto crash

Not less than four persons have lost their lives following as Toyota Siena commercial bus coming from the Okigwe end of the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway  had an accident with a diesel tanker.

According to an eyewitness, two of the bodies were thrown into the nearby bush following the impact of the crash, one was lying face up on the road while the body of the driver was still trapped on his seat.

The Toyota Siena bus has the inscription “Onitsha South Local Government Mass Transit, with a registration number, Ebonyi  AFK 393 XA.

One of the bodies in the nearby bush had a broken skull while the other was bleeding from different parts. The trapped driver also had blood all over his lifeless body.

Commuters, particularly women and young girls, wept uncontrollably at the gory sight. The truck had no plate number, but the inscription on the two  sides of the front doors  was  SGC 2037 with NUPENG emblem .
Sympathisers, who crowded the scene, believe that the driver of the truck must have removed the plate number before running away from the scene  when he saw the impact of the crash.

Efforts made by sympathisers to remove the body of the driver from the seat  did not yield any result as the entire front portion of the bus was compressed on him.

Meanwhile, The Personnel of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), who had been contacted through the phone are yet to come before the eyewitness left the scene.
