He said, “Yes, there was a crash this morning at about 11.30 am at Huturu Village, along Bauchi-Kano road. It involved two commercial vehicles.
“The vehicles include a Volkswagen Golf 3 mini-bus with registration number: SHD184YU and Volkswagen Sharon Wagon.
“The crash was fatal as the two vehicles were engulfed in fire.
”When we were called for rescue, our personnel rushed to the scene and they discovered that 20 passengers comprising of 11 male adults, five female adults, one male child and three female children, were burnt beyond recognition.
“Our men rushed the one male adult who was injured to the Kafin Madaki General Hospital for medical treatment, while the burnt corpses will be buried at Huturu Village.”
He said that the rescue operation was carried out by a joint team of the FRSC personnel, the men of the Nigeria Police Force attached to Kafin Madaki Division, the State Fire Service and that of the Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa International Airport, Bauchi.
The FRSC boss expressed worry at the attitude of drivers who drive recklessly in defiance of traffic rules and regulations.
“This incident is so sad and pathetic. Look at how 20 people lost their lives in this crash due to the recklessness of drivers.
”I wish to call on all motorists to be very careful and vigilant while on the road.
“They should observe all road traffic rules and regulations as well as road traffic signs that are on the road. By so doing, we will have a reduction in crashes that often lead to loss of lives and properties,” he admonished.
