One person was reportedly killed on Friday in an accident that happened around the PDP Road junction along the Isaac Boro Expressway in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

The victim was reported to be the conductor of the truck involved in the accident, along with a tanker and a tricycle called keke.

The keke rider and his three female passengers were said to have reported sustaining different degrees of injuries.

According to a report, the corpse of the conductor was pulled out by officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps, who got the support of the residents in the area.

Melvin Goodnews, the keke rider who sustained injuries, said the truck rammed into his tricycle while he slowed down and waited for the tanker to turn.

He said: “All I can remember is that my keke tumbled and I just saw tyres moving. If the truck didn’t hit the tanker, it would have killed all of us because I was carrying three women inside my keke, and one of them had a big cut on her leg.”
