The back tires of the truck pulled off it, dragged the car and caused it to summersault several times, while the truck stopped a few metres away from the spot.

Following the heavy noise of the collision, some esidents of Obarenren village said they came out of their houses to carry out rescue operation.

They said when they arrived at the scene of the accident, they had to upturn the accident car, tore its doors with an ax before they were able to evacuate the lifeless body of the driver.

It was gathered that the only passenger in the Audi car, a woman, who sustained serious injuries, was rushed to an undisclosed hospital for medical attention.

It was further gathered that the deceased driver and the driver of the truck simply identified as Osaro, hailed from the same village, Iguogun.
