Recently, about seven persons have been killed in a ghastly motor accident near Buckie Polytechnic, on the Ogidi-Abatete road, Anambra State.
The accident which occurred around 5.20pm on Friday involved a Mercedez 608 bus tipper loaded with sand.
It was gathered that the bus was conveying family members in the area to a burial ceremony when it collided with a tipper lorry carrying sand.
An eyewitness who put the number of casualties at seven, said the tipper had a tyre burst resulting in the loss of control and subsequently rammed into the Mercedes Benz 608, conveying the passengers.
He said, “No fewer than seven persons died on the spot while other passengers sustained some degrees of injuries.
“Most of them were members of the same family going for a burial ceremony.
“Those that sustained injuries were rushed to a nearby hospital for immediate attention as the hope of survival hangs in balance.
