Over 10 Feared Dead As Commercial Bus Collides With Truck Loaded With Cement On Enugu-Onitsha Expressway



No fewer than 10 persons were feared dead, on Thursday, following a collision between a commercial bus and a truck loaded with cement on the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway.

The crash occurred around 9 am near the CBN Bus Stop, in Enugu when the 18-seater bus with Enugu registration number, XL884 ENU ran into an incoming trailer carrying bags of cement.

The two vehicles were driving on a single lane as a result of the bad spots on the other lane.

It was gathered that the road safety officials and passers-by who moved swiftly to the scene pulled at least seven lifeless bodies out of the wreckage of the vehicles.

Other unconscious passengers were rushed to a nearby hospital where more passengers were confirmed dead on arrival by medical officials.

Many attributed the avoidable crash to the poor state of the road which has forced many motorists to ply one-way.

The police, army, and Road Safety Personnel are already on ground to control traffic and avoid any breakdown of the law.
