17 people escaped death after being involved in a multiple-vehicle accident. Three vehicles in Nigeria’s Anambra State crashed whilst on the old Enugu-Onitsha expressway, on the Nkpor/Umuoji stretch of the road.
Mr Pascal Anigbo, the Public Enlightenment Officer of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), confirmed the crash. He mentioned that the vehicles involved were a red Mitsubishi bus with registration number JJT920ZW and a truck marked KPE686XA. A white hummer bus without a registration number was also involved in the accident.
