A road traffic accident involving a truck and a motorcycle at Awkuzu Junction on Nteje-Awka Road, Anambra, on Tuesday resulted in the death of the motorcyclist.

Mr Adeoye Irelewuyi, the state Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Anambra, confirmed the incident to newsmen in Awka, NAN reports.

Irelewuyi said the accident, which occurred at about noon, was caused by speeding and wrongful overtaking.

“The crash involved an unidentified driver of a motorcycle, and the driver of a blue Mercedes 911 truck.

“Eyewitness reports indicate that the crash occurred when the motorcycle rider, while on top speed and trying to overtake the truck, lost control and crashed into the truck.

“The motorcycle rider was taken to Chira Hospital and was confirmed dead by the doctor on duty, while his body has been deposited at the mortuary,” the report said.
