No fewer than seven persons have been confirmed dead while five others sustained injuries when a commercial bus veered off the road and hit an articulated truck on Alkaleri-Gombe road, about 50km from Bara village in Kirfi Local Government Area of Bauchi State.

An 18-seater commercial Mitsubish bus with number plate AJ 779 TRN lost control at a sharp bend and rammed into an articulated truck with number plate BB 79 MUS, parked by the roadside.

Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, Mr Sunday Henry Olatunji, who confirmed the accident said among the 12 persons involved in the crash, seven were confirmed dead while five sustained injuries.

According to him, “among the dead persons were three adult males, two male children and two female children. The remaining five that were injured are men.”

Olatunji who said his officers along with state rescue officials rushed to the scene shortly after it happened, attributed the crash to the fault of driver of the Mitsubish bus who was over-speeding.

He therefore appealed to motorists to be careful and observe traffic rules and regulations, especially during the Christmas celebrations.

He said all the victims of the crash, including the corpses of the seven persons had been takento the Federal Medical Centre, Gombe State.
