Two people were today confirmed dead and scores reportedly injured when a truck rammed into a commercial Keke operator at the ever busy Imo State University roundabout in Owerri.
The truck,suspected to have lost control veered off its track while negotiating the gigantic roundabout , crushing on motion commercial Keke full with passengers before finally falling over.
The incident, which occurred a few meters from the gate of the Imo State University, resulted in a heavy traffic jam.
Reports say that the truck which was coming from a sloppy-curvey Orji-Okigwe road caused the burying of a lady instantly, while others were rushed to the hospital,another guy reportedly died before they got to the hospital.
You could recall that, Imo State University roundabout has turned to a blood suckling demon, all appeal to the state government to remedy the situation fell on deaf ears. The big roundabout built by Governor Rochas Okorocha has been totally condemned by All Imolites. Situating a roundabout at such position is counterproductive, hence the need to remove it to save lives.
