The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has confirmed two persons dead and six others injured in three separate car crashes that occurred along Gombe By-pass near Pantami community on Friday.

The Corps Commander in the state, Felix Theman, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday.

He atrributed the accidents involving one truck, a car and a motorcycle to overloading, speeding and faulty vehicle.

He said those that sustained varying degrees of injury had been referred to health centres for medical care, while the corpses deposited at the morgue.

Theman said the accidents occurred at densely populated areas, hence any crash had risks of causalities.

The commander said that in one of the crashes, a motorcyclist was riding with three passengers, “this is unacceptable and that’s why we have been sensitising them but some will just not listen.”

According to him, additional patrol vehicles and personnel will be deploy to areas which had been recording series of crashes.

He cautioned motorists against speeding, overloading and using faulty cars, adding, “we must avoid whatever willl lead to crashes and be careful, especially now that the Ember months are here”.

The man also cautioned residents of the by-pass and Pantami community to avoid trading close to the roads and advised those crossing to be watchful.
