No fewer than eight passengers were allegedly killed in a road crash in Ororokpe road, Okpe local government area of Delta state on Wednesday.

The incident occurred on Wednesday when the commercial vehicle carrying eight passengers veered off the road after stumbling into a pothole and summersaulted severally.

An eye witness, Comrade Paul Akpowaide told Congress correspondent that the vehicle gutted fire immediately, killing the eight persons on board.

He said the scene was crowded by sympathizers, berating the tragedy and the state of bad roadd in the state.

However, effort to reach the Ororokpe police command for comment proved abortive.
