THREE persons have been confirmed dead in multiple accidents, which occurred late Saturday at the Asaba axis of the Benin-Onitsha expressway.
Eight others persons sus­tained injuries in the crash, which involved five ve­hicles, including one truck, two tippers and two com­mercial buses.
Delta State Sector Com­mander of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Mr. Rindom Kum­ven, who confirmed the ac­cident, said corpses of the deceased have been depos­ited at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), while the injured received treatment.
Kumven attributed the accident to dangerous driv­ing and over speeding on the part of the driver of the truck.
He said the ill-fated truck was coming from Onitsha end and struggled for space with a tipper, adding that in the process, the truck crashed against the pillars serving as road divider in the dual carriage way.
Kumven stated that as a result of the crash against the pillars, the truck lost control and further crashed into an oncoming commer­cial bus and two other ve­hicles.
He said 25 passengers were involved, out of which 11 casualties were recorded.
