Nigerian News on December 19, 2012 -

At least 27 people were reported dead, while 18 others sustained various degrees of injuries following an accident involving an articulated vehicle along Ruwa Wuri-Tangaza road on Monday, which also claimed the lives of a number of cows and sheep.
According to eyewitnesses, the driver of the trailer with plate number Sokoto XA 443 SAA, which was heading to Warri, Delta State from Mano village, allegedly lost control and plunged into a river close to Masallaci village in Tangaza Local Government.
The victims, who had been buried in Bagida village, reports say were from Bagida, Sabiyo, Tinnigere, Ruwa Wuri and Tsoni villages, all in the local government.
Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, Sokoto, Dr. Umaru Aliyu, while confirming the incident said: “Our findings revealed that the accident occurred due to over-loading and over-speeding,” adding that the trailer was conveying both cows and humans.
“27 people died, while 15 were injured. Those injured are receiving treatment at Usman Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital, UDUTH, Sokoto, while the driver of the trailer and his motor boy fled,” Aliyu said. http://www.informationnigeria.org/2012/12/trailer-plunges-into-river-killing-27.html

DO YOU KNOW THAT MANY OF THE TRUCK DRIVERS AND "OKADA" MOTORCYCLISTS ON NIGERIAN STREETS AND ROADS ARE ILLITERATES WHO CANNOT READ AND WRITE AND MAJORITY OF THEM ARE ACTUALLY RE-TAR-DED? HOW DID THESE MORONS WHO CANNOT EVEN READ ROAD SIGNS AND TRAFFIC RULES GET THEIR DRIVERS LICENSE?
THAT IS WHY THEY CAUSE TERRIBLE ROAD ACCIDENTS.
