At least 11 people have been confirmed dead in a ghastly road
accident and scores of others sustained various degrees of injuries
along Nasarawa Eggon-Akwanga road.
According to reports, a heavily-loaded Dangote Cement trailer truck
lost control of its brakes and ran into a Toyota Sharon vehicle, killing
all the 11 passengers including the driver.
Eye witnesses revealed that the victims were crushed beyond
recognition and other vehicles also ran into the accident scene, which
caused some of their passengers to sustain injuries.
The Federal Road Safety Corps, Army and the police are currently
assisting in the rescue operation to clear the bodies of the deceased
still lying on the side of the road.
