The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Command in Niger State has confirmed the death of three people in an auto crash on Bida – Kutigi road in Bida Local Government Area of the state.

The state FRSC Sector Commander, Mr Joel Dagwa, made the confirmation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Minna.

Dagwa said that the accident, which occurred on Friday, involved an articulated vehicle without a registration number and a bus with registration SHA 683 XA.

He said that nine people were involved in the accident, but three died while six sustained various degrees of injury.

“We have deposited the corpses at Federal Medical Centre Bida,” Dagwa said.

He blamed the incident on speeding and dangerous overtaking.
