A multiple road crash involving about four vehicles has caused a gridlock along the Aba-Owerri expressway on Friday. The collision happened around the Okpala junction in Ngor-Okpala Local Government Area of the state. A truck had failed break and crashed into another truck conveying bottled malt drinks at a bridge near the junction. One of the trucks fell into a ditch while the lorry it crashed into broke into two and blocked a part of the bridge. The crash also affected a bus and a Corolla car. An official of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) attributed the crash to over speeding and poor maintenance of the trucks. Thankfully, no life was lost in this accident.
