9 Vehicles Involved In Multiple Crash On Abuja Airport Road

No fewer than nine vehicles were involved in a multiple road accident a few metres away from the Military Cemetary on the Airport Road, Abuja, on Tuesday. NAN reports that the accident was caused by a tipper driver whose vehicle apparently experienced break failure.

“I think the tipper failed break and the driver could not control it again,’’ Alhaji Ahmed Rufai, who was with the driver when the accident occurred, said. Rufai said the driver of the tipper with registration number, YAB 925 YT, took to his hails on seeing the impact of the accident.

A police officer, Sgt. Musa Abdulmumini from the Kuje Division of the FCT Police Command who spoke with NAN, said no life was lost. He, however, added that Rufai would be kept in Police custody until he produced the run-away tipper driver, whom he gave his name simply as Idris.

According to the Police officer, Rufai may be the driver of the tipper but may not want to own up, for fear of being lynched. He said that though no life was lost, the level of destruction on the vehicles involved was much. “As it is, everybody has to go and fix his vehicle while we keep Rufai in our custody until the tipper driver is produced, if he is not the driver. “The driver would certainly be charged for reckless driving when he is apprehended,’’ he said.

Some eyewitnesses who spoke with NAN, said the situation would have been worse, if not for a lorry belonging to ARTC Industries which served as a wedge, and prevented the tipper from committing more havoc.  The lorry driver, Mr Akaahan Nyityo, said he was coming from Idu Industrial Area to deliver goods in Asokoro, when he was hit from behind by the tipper driver.

Meanwhile, officials of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and Police personnel were all on ground to ensure free traffic flow at the scene of the accident.
