“He knocked down two women crossing the road and crashed into a building by the side of the road.

“Four people were involved in the crash – two male adults and two female adults.

“The victims were taken to Apex Hospital in Igbo Ukwu by a good Samaritan before the arrival of the FRSC rescue team from Igbo Ukwu Command.

“The male passenger in the vehicle and one of the female pedestrians sustained injuries, while the driver and the other female pedestrian were confirmed dead by the doctor on duty.”
