The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Bauchi Sector Command, has confirmed the death of six persons in a road crash at Sabuwar Gwaram village, along the Bauchi-Alkaleri road in Bauchi State.

FRSC Head of Operations, Bauchi Sector Command, Deputy Corp Commander Ibrahim Abubakar, who spoke with newsmen yesterday said the accident was caused by over-speeding and that it involved two vehicles; a Toyota Camry with number plate; AT 401 JJN  and a Golf car with number plate; AB 776 AKK.

Abubakar said, “the accident occurred on Saturday at about 10.55am at Sabuwar Gwaram along Alkaleri-Bauchi road, when the driver of the Golf car, in the process of avoiding a pothole, lost control and had a head-on collision with the other car; a Toyota Camry. We got a call and our men rushed to the scene of the accident and evacuated the victims to the hospital.

Six persons in the two vehicles, including two females and four males were confirmed dead by a doctor at the hospital.”

He called on drivers to always obey traffic rules, especially during the ember months.

“They should avoid excessive speeding which is the major cause of accidents on the highways.

“This call is very important, especially at this period where there are many vehicles on the highways. If they do this, road crashes will reduce,” he added.
