Nine Vehicles Involved In Multiple Crash At Airport Road, Abuja

Nine vehicles involved in multiple crash on Abuja Airport Road

Nine vehicles have reportedly crashed, few metres away from the Military Cemetary on the Airport Road, Abuja. The accident took place on Tuesday, November 3.

NAN reports that the accident was caused by a tipper driver whose vehicle apparently experienced a break failure.

Alhaji Ahmed Rufai, who was with the driver when the accident occurred, said: “I think the tipper failed break and the driver could not control it again.’’

Rufai said the driver of the tipper with registration number, YAB 925 YT, took to his heels on seeing the impact of the accident.

Some eyewitnesses who spoke with NAN, said the situation would have been worse, if not for a lorry belonging to ARTC Industries which served as a wedge, and prevented the tipper from committing more havoc.

Mr Akaahan Nyityo, the lorry driver, said he was coming from Idu Industrial Area to deliver goods in Asokoro, when he was hit from behind by the tipper driver.

Officials of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and police personnel were all on ground to ensure that traffic flowed fluidly.

Sgt Musa Abdulmumini, a police spokesman from the FCT command, told NAN that no life was lost.

Musa however, added that Rufai would be kept in Police custody until he produced the run-away tipper driver, whose name was given as Idris.

The police spokesman added that Rufai may be the driver of the tipper but may not want to own up, for fear of being lync

He added that though no life was lost, the level of destruction on the vehicles involved was much.

“As it is, everybody has to go and fix his vehicle while we keep Rufai in our custody until the tipper driver is produced, if he is not the driver. “The driver would certainly be charged for reckless driving when he is apprehended,’’ he said.
