How 16 Cheated Death In Delta Road Crash



The Delta State command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Saturday, confirmed that sixteen persons had escaped death by the whiskers when a vehicle they were traveling in got involved in a lone accident in Asaba, Delta State capital.

The accident which occurred at about 12.55pm by Animal Care along the Asaba-Onitsha expressway, involved an ash coloured Toyota Hiace bus with registration number GBZ 369 YK.

The ill-fated bus was heading towards Onitsha when the accident happened.

Out of the sixteen persons on board, ten of them including two minors and eight adult males sustained varying degrees of injuries.


Eyewitnesses said the injured victims were rushed to the hospital, adding that operatives of Delta State command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) were on ground for rescue operations.

Sector Commander of FRSC in the state, Udeme Bassey Eshiet who confirmed the accident, said his men responded within five minutes of receiving the report of the crash.

Eshiet confirmed that nobody died as a result of the crash, adding that the injured victims were rushed to the Federal Medical Center (FMC), Asaba.


He attributed the cause of the lone crash to speed limit violation and loss of control on the part of the driver of the bus.

The sector commander added that the vehicle was towed to the FRSC office in Asaba along with other recovered items.

Eshiet seized the opportunity to caution motorists on the need to observe safety rules on the road to avoid accidents.
