Two Die In Auto Crash In Gombe
Two persons have lost their lives in a fatal accident along Gombe – Yola highway, the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has confirmed.
Janet Kassa, FRSC’s Public Enlightenment Officer in the state, confirmed the accident to newsmen in Gombe on Thursday, NAN reports.
Kassa said one other person sustained injuries in the accident which occurred on Thursday at the New Mile Three Roundabout in Gombe.
She said the injured person was currently receiving treatment at the Specialist Hospital, Gombe, adding that he has been stabilised.
The FRSC officer also blamed the accident on “overspeeding and loss of control.”
“Motorists must be careful not to prioritise money because when crashes happen, who will spend the money?
“We must learn to drive safely so we can meet our loved ones at home safely,” she said.
She added that the FRSC in Gombe would soon commence its mega Ember Months campaign in October to sensitise motorists in this regard.
