Container Falls On Two Tricycles In Onitsha, 2 Crushed, 4 Injured (photo) by GistMore: 5:59pm On Jul 25, 2019
Two persons died while four sustained injuries when a 20-feet container fell on two tricycles in Onitsha, Anambra State.

The incident occurred on the Obodoukwu road junction of Upper Iweka area of the commercial city of the state.

The Nation gathered that the injured persons in critical conditions were rushed to various hospitals for medical attention.

Vehicular movement on both sides of the Onitsha-Owerri road was halted following presence of towing vehicles belonging to the Police, FRSC and other relevant agencies involved in the rescue operations.

Eye witnesses said the 20ft container slipped off from the 4ft trailer while in motion.

When our correspondent visited the scene, some of the victims were yet to be rescued as the container was heavy for two large towing lorries brought to lift it from the trapped tricycles.

The surviving victims were later rescued through the assistance of policemen from the Okpoko Divisional Police Station, officials of the FRSC and Anambra State Traffic Management Agency (ASTMA) in conjunction with the ambulance workers of the Toronto hospital.

Confirming the incident, Police Public Relations Officer in the State, Haruna Mohammed, said two persons lost their lives while four others had been hospitalised.

He said the area has since been cordoned off while the road had been cleared for free flow of vehicular movement.
