35 persons recently escaped death after a tanker reportedly crashed into 10 vehicles and a Keke Napep in Anambra State
According to eyewitness accounts, the fuel-laden tanker came to deliver fuel at a certain filling station when it suddenly lost control and began rolling down a “One-Way” road. Several vehicles and a Keke Napep was badly hit by the tanker as the driver continued to make efforts to stop the tanker from causing further damages. Many of the eyewitnesses gave glory to God for making the fuel tanker later stop by itself in the middle of the same road despite the fact that its brake had already failed to respond. All the victims affected by the accident believed that their survival was simply a miracle because the tanker alone could crush them to death, not to mention the possibility of being killed by a massive fire outbreak that would have occurred if the tanker’s content was spilt.
