The accounts of this recent accident as published on local media outlets claim that an IVECO truck with no plate number and a Volvo truck with plate number GBE 454 ZC were involved in the crash. It was also reported that the driver of the Volvo was the one who slept off while driving on the expressway and crashed into the IVECO truck that was parked by the roadside because it broke down.
Various media sources claim that no life was lost in this crash but four persons suffered severe injuries and were rushed to the hospital after the incident. Similarly, the incident reportedly caused temporary traffic gridlock in that part of the road as emergency responders had to empty the content of the Volvo truck on the road to separate the two trucks. As of the time of writing this report, personnel of the FRSC and emergency responders were said to have cleared the scene of the incident and restored proper traffic flow in the area. Meanwhile, there is yet to be any further information given about the four victims of the crash that were admitted to the hospital.
