06 June 2014, 21:49

Anambra - The Federal Road Safety Commission on Thursday confirmed the death of three persons on the Onitsha-Owerri road in a road crash.

The incident, which happened around 12:45 p.m., caused heavy human and vehicular traffic at the Okija Junction of the ever-busy road.

Daniel Asanya, the Unit Commander of the commission in Ihiala, said that the incident involved an 18-seater commercial bus.

Asanya noted that the officers and men of the unit had hectic time controlling the traffic at the scene of the incident for more than five hours.

He said the driver of the bus might have lost control when its front tyre burst.

The commander said the victims, who died instantly, were a girl and two boys while nine passengers, who are injured, were rushed to a nearby hospital.
