An unknown person has been reported dead with another injured in an auto crash involving a Mack truck and a tricycle which occurred on Monday along IBB way, near Women Development Centre, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital.
The accident occurred between truck belonging to AMITEC Construction Company with registration number KPR321XA and the tricycle, a KVS King, with registration number, JW740KET.
The Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Matthew Olonisaye, in a statement on Tuesday, said the cause of the accident was a result of brake failure.
“Vehicle owners should not take maintenance of their vehicles for granted. The Sector command will continue to be hard on owners of vehicles that are not roadworthy. Road users should obey traffic rules and regulations and continue to cooperate with our operatives to minimize road mishaps,” Olonisaye said.
He prayed to God to grant the dead eternal rest and the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss
