Tragedy as trailer crushes three persons to death
A road accident involving a trailer left three persons dead in Girei, headquarters of the Girei Local Government Area of Adamawa State on Monday.
The accident, it was gathered, occurred at Viniklang Junction, a busy spot on the edge of Girei near the Jimeta Bridge that links Girei with the capital city of Yola.
Eyewitnesses said a trailer loaded with grains, speeding down the Mubi-Yola Road towards the Jimeta Bridge, ran over two Keke NAPEP operators and a pedestrian crossing the road around the Viniklang Junction.
Officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) have reportedly evacuated the corpses to the Specialist Hospital, Yola and cleared the road for free flow of traffic.
