Tragedy struck along the Owerri-Ihiala Expressway in Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State as a solitary accident led to the untimely deaths of a truck driver and his conductor.

Mr. Adeoye Irelewuyi, the Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Anambra, confirmed the incident, stating that it occurred on Friday and attributing the probable cause to speeding and loss of control.

The accident involved a Mercedes truck with registration number XD131NSH, reportedly driven by an unidentified commercial driver who, according to eyewitnesses, was traveling at high speed before losing control of the vehicle. The truck subsequently veered off the road, colliding with a large gutter and resulting in a fatal crash.

Tragically, both the driver and conductor, identified as male adults, lost their lives in the accident. Good Samaritans assisted in transporting the deceased victims to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital Mortuary in Ihiala before the arrival of the FRSC rescue team.

Efforts by the FRSC rescue team led to the removal of debris from the expressway, restoring normalcy to both vehicular and human movement in the area.

Expressing condolences to the families of the deceased, Sector Commander Irelewuyi reiterated the importance of responsible driving, urging motorists to avoid excessive speeding and adhere to safe speed limits to prevent such tragic incidents in the future.

"Let’s drive to stay alive; road safety is everyone’s responsibility," Irelewuyi emphasized, underscoring the collective duty to prioritize safety on the roads.
