A tragic Sunday as a Peace Mass Transit Bus collided with a yellow truck along the Umuahia-Okigwe Road at about 6.30pm on Sunday, May 22, 2016.
Princewill Atasie, an eye-witness said that due to a heavy rain, the road was slippery and this unfortunate incident happened when the yellow truck was overtaking another vehicle on the road.
“The other lane of the expressway is bad, so commuters are using one side, creating a one-way situation,” Atasie told our reporter on phone. “It appears as if the driver miscalculated as he was overtaking another vehicle which led to the head-on collusion.”
Images from the ghastly motor accident shows that the driver of the Peace Mass Transit bus and many passengers may have died on the spot.
As at the time of reporting this, first responders are yet to arrive at the scene of the accident.
May the souls of the departed, rest in peace.
