No fewer than four persons have reportedly died in an auto crash on the Benin-Auchi expressway in the Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State.
A truck laden with cement en route to Benin from Abuja rammed into three vehicles after the driver lost control, PUNCH reports.
The collision left four passengers dead and one other sustained severe injuries.
The Head of Operations and acting state Sector Commander of the FRSC, Samson Eniyemo, said the remains of the deceased were deposited in a morgue while the injured was taken to a hospital.
Eniyemo attributed the auto crash to brakes’ failure and speed.
He, however, advised motorists to always observe traffic regulations and adhere to speed limits while on the road.
