4 “The Nissan Sunny Sedan Bus was parked behind a truck at a military checkpoint when another truck lost control and rammed into the bus squeezing it in between.

5 “Investigation showed that the brake of the truck failed, resulting in it smashing into the bus from the rear and leading to the death of three people; all males.

6 Two others, however, were rescued unhurt.

7 “In other words, the truck was believed to be mechanically deficient leading to its loss of control and the crash,” he explained.

8 Dawulung said his officers and men had been able to clear the traffic obstruction for free flow of traffic along the Okene – Auchi Road.
He said there was the need for motorists to ensure routine checks and maintenance of vehicles to avoid unfortunate incidents along the highways.

“This, we believe, will not only reduce the rate of crashes but also the severity of injuries and death in the event that crash occurs,” he said.
