Four dead, many injured in fatal auto crash in Delta


Four persons have been confirmed dead with several others injured in an auto crash on the Benin-Asaba Expressway, Emuhu axis, Delta State.

The incident was confirmed in a statement by the acting Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Bright Edafe on Thursday.

According to reports, the victims were burnt to death after a diesel-laden tanker caught fire when it collided with an 18-seater commercial bus.

Edafe explained that four persons died on the spot, while many who were injured were taken to hospitals.

“The accident caused gridlock on the busy road, but security agents, including the police, were on ground to divert traffic to alternative routes.”

The crash happened barely 24 hours after seven wedding guests died in an accident at Orogun, in the Ughelli North LGA of the state.
