According to the Anambra State President of JONAPWD, Mr Ugochukwu Okeke, who was on board the vehicle, one of the front tyre detached while it was speeding on the expressway, causing a total loss of control which forced the driver to run into the gutter while avoiding pedestrians who were trying to cross the road.
He explained that the vehicle had just returned from the mechanic where it was serviced for a bad brake pad, suspecting that the repairer might have failed to tighten the tyre well.May be an image of 1 person and outdoors
No life was however lost, neither did any of the three occupants of the vehicle sustain any injury, but the vehicle’s windscreen, headlamps, door sides and underneath were badly damaged.
