Two occupants of a Toyota Highlander SUV, Fidelis Omoruyi and his daughter, Omon, cheated death on Wednesday, as a tyre-laden truck crushed their vehicle in Benin, Edo State.
The accident which occurred along the Akpakpava Road, by First East Circular Junction, was attributed to a bump at the middle of the Road.
Many at the scene of the accident described the survival of the occupants of the SUV as miraculous. Omoruyi said they stopped at a transport firm by the junction to deliver a parcel when they suddenly heard a loud noise as the truck crashed into their vehicle.
An eyewitness, Osasu, condemned the poor attitude of the agency responsible for the maintenance of roads in Benin, saying that the bump which allegedly caused the accident has caused many others.
