8 died, 8 injured in Anambra auto crash

NNEWI—No fewer than eight persons were feared dead, yesterday, in an auto crash involving a Mitsubishi commercial
bus and a tipper lorry at the Ideani end of Nnobi-Ideani-Ojoto-Umuoji-Nkpor road in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Eight others also allegedly sustained various degrees of injuries in the accident, which occurred as a result of a head-on collision by the two vehicles.

According to an eyewitness, the bus, an Ekwulobia-bound fully-loaded mass transit vehicle, coming from Onitsha- Nkpor, collided with the tipper, coming from Nnobi end, close to Ideani River.

The tipper lorry was said to have smashed the bus, which resulted in the instant death of six of the bus passengers, while two others died on their way to a nearby hospital.

Those that sustained injuries were said to on danger list in their hospital beds.

Efforts by newsmen to get in touch with the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, in-charge of Nnobi Police Station on phone, proved abortive as there was no response.

A Senior Police Officer, who pleaded anonymity, confirmed the incident but said only four had so far been confirmed dead by the police.

The Onitsha Unit Commander of Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, Mr. Metta, could not be reached at press time.

The bus is actually Alor Unique Mass Transit coming from Alor -Ideani -Nnobi junction and not from Ekwulobia as the reporter said.

RIP to the dead.

Eternal rest grant unto them oh lord...
Why must police report on the number of deaths in any tragedy vary from that of the journalists?
Re: 8 Killed, 8 Injured In Anambra Auto Crash by Kslib(m): 9:32am On May 22, 2013
R..I..P..
Lesson learnt: Live your life happily as if there's no tomorrow..
Do not procrastinate cos time waits for no one..
Don't take things too too too over serious.
Dont worry too much cos what will happen will definately happen and worrying too much only attracts negative energy towards your life..
The most important thing is to make sure you do not ignore the people who love you dearly cos you're too busy working,studying or planning for the future or playing hard to get(lol) because sometimes these struggles we engage in everyday of our lives are just not worth it.
Life is too short to live your life the way others want you to live it cos at the end of it all "they must still find faults in your person" and death might just not give you the chance to live your life the way you want to.That to me,is a big loss..ONCE AGAIN R..I..P TO THE DEAD,

What road is Bad?! angry

Driver error na ehn dey casue accidents for Anambra State. Just this Sunday on my way back to Port-Harcourt, A truck ran into a building on that beautiful and wide road in Onitsha (a few kms before Obosi interchange). I saw one body on the ground as at when I crossed, I't looked like there might be more.

If a road is bad, shouldnt that slow a driver down naturally?!
