One killed in Edo auto crash

MOTORISTS plying the Ring – Akpakpava – Ikpoba- Ramat Park and Agbor Roads in Benin metropolis have lamented the frequent road accidents along the route which had claimed no fewer than six lives within the last three days and described the traffic light at the Ikpoba Slope/Murtala Muhammed Way as unsafe.

The lamentation by the motorists  is coming on the heels of a  motor accident that  occurred  yesterday resulting in the death of one person suspected to be the driver of one of the cars rammed into by three articulated trucks at the Ikpoba Slope/M.M.Way junction while approaching the traffic light.

The accident, which occurred at the early hours of yesterday, an eye witness said, happened  when a truck allegedly beat the traffic light at a previous junction and, in a bid to avoid the men of the Edo State Traffic Management Agency (EDSTMA) who were chasing it,  lost control as it approached another traffic light and rammed into seven vehicles including brand new cars yet to be numbered.

Eye witnesses attributed accidents on the same spot  to the recklessness of drivers and the inept attitude of the men of the EDSTMA, and the sloppy nature of the road.

The vehicles involved in the multiple accident include Mercedes Benz truck, unregistered  and conveying another unregistered vehicle, a Mark tanker
