The people of Agbala in Owerri North Local Government Area were greeted with a dreary scene when a truck collided with a school bus along the busy KM5 Aba/Owerri Road this morning Tuesday, 10th May 2022.
According to first responders reports interviewed by Uptownerd at the scene of the accident that occurred near the Anambra – Imo River Basin, Agbala, the truck driver may have been drunk and probably fell asleep.
Enquiries showed that nobody died in the collision. However, the alleged sleepy driver was said to have been left unconscious after the crash and has been rushed to a nearby hospital for immediate attention.
Bystanders and locals have also taken the opportunity to once again call on the State government to fast track the dualisation and completion of the Aba Owerri Road so as to stop the reoccurrence of this type of incident in the future.
More to come as the story develops.
