Abuja Truck Accident – 1 Killed, 4 Injured

At about 1400 hrs, a BUA truck fully loaded with bags of cement had a failed brake at Kugbo while heading towards Nyanya and ran into a Dangote truck from behind.

This situation caused a total blockade. However, our men from the Emergency Ambulance Service Scheme known as Zebra and Nyanya Unit promptly moved in and created an alternative route through Kugbo mechanic village for gradual movement of traffic.

The four injured people were immediately taken to Nyanya General Hospital and Medical centre Mararaba while a lone corpse from the crash has been deposited at the Mararaba Federal Medical Centre’s mortuary.

The Dangote truck has been moved out of the road while our tow truck is still working tirelessly to move the BUA truck as the engine, gear and prime mover are all detached from the tail.

The bags of cement are also being moved out of the road.
