Gas tanker crashes at East-West road in Delta



By Anita Godfrey

Pandemonium as a gas tanker belonging to Freshvile company crashed into the paved ways, demarcating the double lanes of the East-West road at Uwheru community junction in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta state.

The incident reportedly occurred on Friday night when the gas tanker crashed and fell across the East-West road, restricting vehicular movements in the ever busy road.

Our reporter who visited the scene discovered that the accident was caused by either overspeeding or the driver may have been possibly on a nap.

It was gathered that there would have been a great disaster if not that the gas tanker did not burst into flame of fire.

Our reporter couldn’t ascertained whether the driver survived the accident, or there was any other causality.

However, the community had called on the authorities and the management of the company to come and evacuate the tanker from the highway to avoid further accidents.

The police authorities could not be reached for comment at the time of filing this report.
