The Anambra FRSC sector commander, Mr Andrew Kumapayi stated that the woman (victim) dies right on the spot of the incident. He also mentioned that the body of the deceased is currently stored at the morgue of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital in Awka.

When making personal comments and giving advice to pedestrians for the festive periods, the commander said;

“My advice to road users especially pedestrians during this season is to be extra careful when crossing the road.

“They should endeavour to use the pedestrian bridge provided for them if any, and if there is none, they should look left, right and left again to make sure that the road is free before crossing.

“Let them wear reflective clothes when walking in the night so that they can be seen by oncoming vehicles,”
