According to reports a Honda Civic Saloon presumed to be driven by a car dealer rammed into a tree in front of the Bishop’s house along Central Bank road.
The Nations reported that the driver who was said to be over speeding lost control of the vehicle before ramming into the tree that resulted in the death of two persons.
The driver died on the spot, while the second person was confirmed dead as he was being rushed to the emergency ward at the Federal Medical Center, Makurdi.
An eyewithness said the accident occurred due to the impatience of the driver who he said was in a hurry to meet a client who indicated interest in buying a car.
“I was standing in front of the bishop’s house to take motorcycle to my school, when I saw the vehicle on high speed coming towards me. I quickly ran out of its path, only to hear a thunderous sound when the vehicle hit the entrance gate to Bishop’s house.”
