No fewer than four persons were confirmed dead with many others critically injured, following a tragic accident that occurred at the Aba River Bridge, Ogbor-Hill, Aba, Abia State on Tuesday morning. The accident occurred when a trailer conveying a 40-feet container, descending from Ogbor-Hill, lost control after break failure and collided with two vehicles at the top of the Aba River Bridge. An eyewitness said the vehicle while descending from Opobo-Junction along Aba Ikot-Ekepe Highway, was swerving uncontrollably and unfortunately met another spoilt trailer on top of the bridge and in the process of trying to dodge the trailer, it collided with a Siena and another stationary vehicle which it fell on, killing and injuring many.
