The incident which occurred around 5:30 Am this morning, along Aba Owerri Road Aba, by rail way before Izu Ukwu junction, has left many of Aba residents stranded following the traffic gridlock the accident has caused.

According to an eyewitness, the accident occurred because of the recklessness of the Trailer driver, as the Train which is heading to Port Harcourt, Rivers State keeps horning and the Trailer driver knowing that the Train is fast approaching wanted to cross the railway before the train.

The Train, which has been horning couldn’t hold its break smashed the trailer. Although no life was lost but, the trailer driver having in mind the consequences and the traffic gridlock the accident would cause, abandoned his vehicle and took to his heels.

Meanwhile, The railway which crosses over the ever busy Aba Owerri Road, is truly a dangerous part as no any sign to alert the public and the motorist when a train is approaching.

As at the time of filling this report the road is blocked and residents are trecking from Osisioma to park, a journey that cost N70 to N80.
