Tragedy struck today in Ado Ekiti as four people were feared dead and three others sustained severe injuries in an accident involving a truck and a taxi cab in Similoluwa area of the state capital.

The accident threw passers-by and families of the victims in wailing and mourning.

When Radio Nigeria got to the scene of the accident, sympathizers, motorists and commercial motorcyclists were seen rushing the victims to the hospital for medical attention while corpses of the dead had been deposited at the morgue of EKSUTH.

Many of the sympathizers blamed the truck driver for driving recklessly, while others believed that he was allegedly drunk. Some, however, claimed that the truck had brake failure.

A lady, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, said that only God saved them from the same truck at Dalimore before the accident at Similoluwa.

Radio Nigeria observed that the drivers of the two vehicles were feared dead while the two vehicles were badly damaged beyond repair.
