Reckless Driver Survives But Two Passengers Die In Benin-Ore Road Accident

Reckless Driver Survives But Two Passengers Die In Benin-Ore Road Accident
04 Sep

An undergraduate student of Abia State University was one of two people who lost their lives in an accident on Benin-Ore Road that occurred on Saturday.

A witness who spoke to SaharaReporters stated that the ‘Young Shall Grow’ bus left Abia State and was heading to Lagos, when the accident occurred. 

According to him, Uju Josiah and a man whose identity had not yet been ascertained, who was sitting beside her, were the two casualties, while others sustained injuries in the incident.

Uju, a student of Abia State University, is the last child of her family.

He said: “The driver tried to overtake two trucks. He tried to pass the middle of the trucks when the accident occured.

“The driver was one of those who survived. These drivers kill a lot of people with their self-willed and headstrong actions. Most of them drink early in the morning before they leave the park.

“If you look at the picture I sent you, it was so glaring that the driver tried to manoeuvre his side not to hit the truck so well, thereby using the other edge of the bus to hit the truck.”

A friend of the deceased’s family told SaharaReporters: “Honestly, I feel this stupid ‘Young Shall Grow’ motor company should be banned for life. The drivers are totally reckless. My one-time experience with them made will never allow me patronise them again.”

SaharaReporters also learnt that passengers with not-so-serious injuries were transferred to Ore General Hospital, while those in critical conditions were referred to Ondo Teaching Hospital.
