Two Die, Baby, Others Injured In Fatal Accident In Delta

Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

An alleged reckless driving and overspeeding by drivers of a Lexus jeep and a Toyota Sienna bus has led to a fatal accident that has claimed two lives on the spot.

A baby and some other occupants of the two cars sustained severe injuries and are being attended to in a hospital.

The incident occurred Saturday afternoon along Eku-Sapele road of Delta.

One of the cars is a Lexus RX 350 with Registration No. KTU 942GS Lagos while the other is a Toyota Sienna.

The impact of the head-on collision was described as intense as the two vehicles were crushed beyond recognition.

The dead were identified as two males one in jeans trousers and the other in blue native dress.

It was gathered that the deceased and others involved in the accident were indigenes of Oghara, in Ethiope West Local Government Area of the state.

They were said to be headed for a wedding ceremony at Agbor in Ika South Local Government Area of the state when the incident occurred.

A video clip obtained from the Facebook wall of Sapele Matters showed two lifeless male bodies on the ground and the two mangled vehicles.

It appears that after ramming each other, the vehicles veered off the road and summerssaulted several times into the bush before they eventually stopped.

The cars were mangled beyond repairs.

Sympathisers in the video were heared lamenting the horror of the accident, blaming the two drivers for reckless driving.

Official statements from both the Delta Police Command and the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) are still being awaited.
