10 persons have been confirmed death in Zamfara State on Sunday’s late evening in an auto-crash. the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) says.
The Public Relations Officer of the command, Nasiru Ahmed while confirming the incident, said the incident occurred on the Sokoto-Gusau road and involved a head-on collision between a Golf car and a truck.
NAN reports that Ahmed said 10 persons died while two other persons sustained injuries and were currently receiving treatment at Yariman Bakura Special Hospital in Gusau.
The accident, he said, was due to over-speeding and loss of control on both sides.
He urged drivers to avoid night journeys as a way of reducing crashes on the roads.
