In the blink of an eye, lives can be shattered, families torn apart, and communities left reeling from the aftermath of a road accident.

The recent collision between a lorry and a Lord’s Chosen luxury bus serves as a stark reminder of the devastating consequences that can result from a momentary lapse in judgment behind the wheel.

Eyewitnesses recount the harrowing scene, describing how the tranquility of Orokwe Market Road was shattered when a lorry, oblivious to its surroundings, carelessly merged onto the bustling Owerri-Onitsha Express Road.

The repercussions were catastrophic, as the hulking vehicle collided with a Lord’s Chosen Luxurious bus, sending it careening into the gutter, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake.

The impact was not confined to metal and concrete alone.

Three innocent pedestrians found themselves unwitting victims of this senseless collision, their lives forever altered by the callousness of a momentary oversight.

Amidst the chaos, the lorry driver, whose reckless actions set this tragedy in motion, chose to flee the scene, leaving behind a trail of devastation and despair.

In the wake of such calamity, the importance of conscientious driving cannot be overstated.
