Tragedy struck at the Kwale axis of the Ughelli-Asaba expressway in Delta State at the week­end when five persons suspected to be members of the same family were burnt to death in a road accident involving their vehicle and another.

An eyewitness told Daily Sun that the vehicles were moving towards Asaba, the state capital, but on sepa­rate lanes of the dualised road.

Unfortunately, however, the vehicle on the primary lane had a burst tyre, which scaled it over the road di­viders to hit the vehicle conveying the family mem­bers. The two vehicles, it was gathered, went up in flames apparently due to the impact of the contact.

The two vehicles in­volved in the crash were burnt beyond recognition.

The five occupants of the vehicle whose identities were yet to be ascertained  were burnt along with their vehicle while the two occu­pants of the vehicle that had a burst tyre were rushed to the hospital.

According to the wit­ness, the chances of sur­vival of the injured victims were very slim as they had severe burns all over their bodies.
