Auto crash in Enugu sent 10 to death

Atleat 10 persons were feared dead in a fatal accident which occurred at CBN bus stop, along the dilapidated Enugu-Onitsha expressway.

Our correspondent who visited the scene of the ugly incident, said dead bodies littered everywhere while passers-by made frantic effort to take both the dead bodies and the survivors to a nearby hospital.

The accident occurred at about 8:45am when an 18-seater bus with Enugu registration number, XL884 ENU ran into an incoming trailer carrying bags of cement.

An eyewitness who spoke with our correspondent said the vehicle, which loaded from Abakpa, in Enugu East local government was heading to New Market when the fatal accident occurred.

“The driver whose name was given as Simeon, was coming from Abakpa and made attempt to overtake another vehicle in his front that was emitting too much carbon monoxide.

“As he made attempt to overtake the vehicle, the trailer was very close and the next thing we heard was a loud sound and the bus was completely damaged. I don’t know how many survived but I counted over 8 dead bodies on the floor,” the eyewitness who gave his name as Chukwudi said.

However, others attributed the avoidable crash to the poor state of the road which has forced many Motorists to ply one-way.

The police, army and Road Safety Personnel are already on ground to control traffic and avoid any breakdown of law.
