Three persons were seriously injured at the weekend in a multiple auto crash along Phase 3 road in Kubwa, a satellite town of the FCT.
A witness said the crash occurred around the Phase 3 traffic junction, involving two cars and a motorcycle.
He said the driver of a Toyota Highlander car with registration number, FU 234 ABJ was coming from the Federal Housing axis when he sighted officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), and in trying to evade arrest, knocked down a motorcyclist and his passenger.
“As soon as he hit them, he sped off and collided with another vehicle before he finally somersaulted after hitting an electric pole by the road side,” the witness added.
According to the man, the motorcyclist, his passenger and the driver of the affected vehicle, sustained injuries and were rushed to the Kubwa General Hospital for medical attention.
City News however learnt that the fleeing driver whose car was badly damaged, sustained a minor injury and was later arrested by the police and his vehicle impounded.
The Kubwa Divisional Police Officer, Chief Superintendent Nuruddeen Sabo, while confirming the arrest of the driver, said a locally made pistol, four live ammunitions and a cutlass were recovered from the vehicle.
