Gombe -The Federal Roads Safety Commission (FRSC) on Saturday confirmed that one person died while another sustained injuries in an auto crash, involving a trailer at the Gombe Central Roundabout.
The Assistant Corps Commander of the FRSC in Gombe State, Ahmed Musa, confirmed the development in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gombe.
He said that the incident occurred at about 3 a.m. when the driver of the trailer lost control of the vehicle.
“One person died while the other person was trapped inside the vehicle,'' he stated.
Musa said that other security operatives joined the FRSC to rescue the accident victims, attributing the accident to the sloppy nature of the road.
An eye-witness, Malam Sulaiman Mohammed, told NAN that he heard the sound of the vehicle when it crashed but that he refused to come out thinking it was an attack by terrorists.
