Three persons were injured following an auto crash between a tricycle, popularly known as Keke Napep, and a truck in Awka the Anambra State capital.

The crash which occurred at about 9:23 a.m. on Sunday, January 26, 2020 occurred at Kwata Junction, about one and a half kilometers from the FRSC Command in Awka.

It was gathered that the tricycle, with Reg. No. ABN469QB, beat the traffic light and rammed into an oncoming Mercedes Benz truck with Reg No. ENU352ZU.

The impact injured three persons, a female and two male children. A total number of six victims were involved comprising three male adults, one female adult and two male children.

A statement by Pascal A. Anigbo, of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Anambra State, said that the injured victims were rushed to Hope Alive Hospital Kwata, while both vehicles were impounded at the Police Station.

“The obstructions have been cleared. FRSC operatives are on ground managing traffic. The FRSC Sector Commander, CC Andrew A. Kumapayi, has warned motorists to adhere strictly to all Road Traffic Rules and Regulations, as disobedience to any can only lead to avoidable road mishaps,” Anigbo said.
