A middle aged man has died while three others sustained injuries after a Toyota Landcruiser jeep with registration number KJA 961 XY collided with a tipper truck with registration number YAB 878 PG along Kuje-Airport road, Abuja.

A witness said the accident happened around 9:25 am when the driver of the jeep while on speed overtook another vehicle and collided with the tipper truck coming from the opposite side.

He said a Lexus SUV with registration number ABC 497 KK which was coming on speed from behind also rammed into the two vehicles.

He said the accident left three persons injured.

He added that some rescue team officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) later arrived at the scene and evacuated the injured and the corpse to a hospital.

Daily Trust gathered that two among those injured were taken to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Jabi, Abuja while another was taken to Kuje General Hospital.

The corpse was deposited at Kuje General Hospital morgue.

When contacted, the FCT sector commander of the FRSC, Mr Samuel Ogar Ochi, said he was in a meeting and promised to call back later, which he did not at press time.
