Four people have reportedly been killed in a fatal motorcycle crash that occurred along Kurum – Bogoro road in Bogoro local government area of Bauchi state.
The accident involved two motorcycles coming in opposite directions. It occurred on Friday, December 30th, at about 7 pm.
Eyewitness account said that the two motorcyclists who were coming from opposite directions had a head-on collision at the junction leading to the death of four persons while two travellers sustained varying degrees of injuries.
WikkiTimes learnt that before the crash, one of the motorcycles operated without headlights making it difficult for the other rider from the opposite direction to be aware thereby leading to the crash.
A family member of the victims, Daniel Haruna, who confirmed the crash narrated how his son perished in the accident saying, “yes, my son was killed in the unfortunate accident.
“He and his friend left home yesterday evening to go to a nearby village called Kurum, but, a few minutes later, I received a phone call that they were involved in an accident.
“I went to the hospital and saw his lifeless body. As I am talking to you, we are planning for their burials. The dead people are four in number while those injured are currently receiving treatment at the general hospital, Bogoro.”
