Fifteen persons lost their lives in Adamawa State, on Sunday, when a truck conveying cows and passengers lost control on a bridge and fell into the drying river.
The Adamawa Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) confirmed the incident, in Yola, on Monday. Adetunji said that the accident occurred at about 10p.m. on the Ngurore Bridge on Yola-Numan Road.
He said that before the arrival of FRSC personnel at the scene, the victims had been evacuated to the Federal Medical Centre, Yola, and Specialists Hospital, Yola.
Adetunji said that the numbers of injured persons had yet to be ascertained.
“I received a call at about 22:00hours on Sunday that there was a crash on Ngurore Bridge on Yola-Numan Highway.
“On arrival at the scene, we discovered that it was a truck carrying cows and passengers that lost control and fell into the drying river,” the commander said.
According to him, six dead bodies were deposited at the Federal Medical Centre and nine at the Specialists Hospital.
He advised motorists to shun night driving as well as avoid transporting human beings and animals in the same vehicle.

At times we need to post what is right so as to give our readers the real state of what occur not just posting anything because our readers were not there as witness. First of all it did not happen around 10pm but before 8pm as I was in a bus coming from Jalingo, Taraba State on Sunday evening & it was not into any dry river but jst by the road side. It was a truck carrying cows and not that GUO posted above. Please we should note that information is power!!!
