Mr. Kalu confirmed that 5 victims of the car crash had already lost their lives while 2 survived with terrible injuries and are currently receiving medical attention in the hospital.
NaN reports explained that Enugu FRSC patrol teams who took close observations at the scene of the incident claim that the crash was caused by a green-painted Toyota Sienna bus that tried to wrongfully overtake a truck.
This bad driving act reportedly led to an unexpected head-on collision between the Toyota Sienna bus and the heavy-duty truck which was loaded with some fertilizer products.
All the 5 people that lost their lives in the accident were passengers of the Sienna bus while only the driver of the truck as well as his “conductor” survived with serious injuries and are currently at the hospital receiving treatment.
