Nigeria: 10 die in truck crash

A medical official says 10 people have died in a truck crash, the third reported incident of its kind in the last week in Nigeria`s north.



Kano: A medical official says 10
people have died in a truck crash, the third reported incident
of its kind in the last week in Nigeria`s north.

Yusuf Makama said today that a truck collided with a
16-seat minibus yesterday evening along a highway in Jigawa
state and injured four others.

Eyewitness Ahmed Mudi Shantake says a jaywalker caused the
accident.

Authorities say 30 people have died in two recent truck
crashes in the country`s north.

Crashes are common on Nigeria`s poorly maintained roads.
Drivers often travel at high speed and overtake slower
vehicles, leading to head-on collisions and high death rates.

Even main cities are linked by pitted, two-lane roads
crammed with passenger buses, trucks laden with goods and
rickety private vehicles.
