Truck Crushes Woman To Death While Crossing Expressway In Onitsha



An unidentified middle-aged woman was today crushed to death by a green-coloured DAF truck around the Coca Cola axis of the Onitsha/Awka expressway in Anambra State. The fatal accident occurred Thursday around 9:05am. The sector public education officer of the Federal Road Safety Corps in Anambra State, RC Pascal A. Anigbo, told  the driver of the truck lost control of the vehicle while trying to avoid pedestrians crossing the expressway. According to him, “At about 9.05am today, Thursday 25 June, 2020, a middle-aged woman lost her life while crossing the expressway in front of Coca-Cola, along Onitsha-Awka expressway, Onitsha. She was knocked down by a green coloured DAF truck with registration number USL860ZC. The crash was reportedly caused by loss of control. The driver of the truck lost control of the vehicle while trying to avoid pedestrians crossing the expressway, but unfortunately ran over the victim. “A combined team of the FRSC rescue operatives, Onitsha unit command and Upper-Iweka outpost, arrived at the scene within five minutes of receiving a distress call on the incident. The corpse was deposited at Toronto Hospital, while the vehicle was handed over to the Nigeria Police at Okpoko Police Station for further investigations.” Anigbo said while the sector commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, Anambra State, Andrew A. Kumapayi, condoled with the family of the deceased, he also warned drivers to shun every form of dangerous driving. Kumapayi also advised pedestrians to always make use of pedestrian bridges where available.
