The FRSC attributed the accident to overloading, speed violation and head-on-collision.

Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Bauchi, says no fewer than eight persons lost their lives in a road accident that occurred in Bauchi on Saturday.

Mr Abdullahi, in an interview in Bauchi on Sunday, said the accident involved an Opel Vectra car with plate number AA 954 GYD and one Tipper Mercedes Benz with number plate NIN 279 SA.

The accident happened in Goltukurwa village along Dass-Bauchi road at 9:30 p.m., and took personnel of the FRSC about seven minutes to arrive at the scene to clear the site.

Mr Abdullahi attributed the accident to overloading, speed violation and head-on-collision, explaining that nine people were involved in the crash, comprising two males, six females and a male child.

He, however, revealed that all the eight passengers in the Opel Vectra car which ran into the tipper, lost their lives while only the driver of the tipper, whose name was simply identified as Abubakar Mohammed emerged unscathed.

The FRSC boss said that his personnel had cleared the obstructions at the crash scene, adding that the corpses of the deceased have also been taken to the General Hospital, Dass.
