Four killed, one injured in Edo auto crash


No fewer than four persons have reportedly died in an auto crash on the Benin-Auchi expressway in the Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State.

One person was said to have been injured in the incident which occurred at the popular Jattu junction.

It was learnt that tragedy struck when a truck laden with cement and en route to Benin from Abuja rammed into three vehicles after the driver lost control.

A source said that the impact of the collision left four passengers dead and one other with injuries.

The truck was also said to have rammed into an articulated vehicle in the process.

It was gathered that the accident left motorists stranded as it resulted in a gridlock on the busy road for several hours, before the intervention of officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps.

It was also learnt that the remains of the deceased were deposited in a morgue while the injured was taken to a hospital.

The Head of Operations and acting state Sector Commander of the FRSC, Samson Eniyemo, confirmed the incident.

Eniyemo attributed the auto crash to brakesí failure and speed.

He, however, advised motorists to always observe traffic regulations and adhere to speed limits while on the road.
