Hit-and-run driver kills woman in Anambra

A driver hit and killed a female pedestrian along the Awka-Onitsha Expressway in Anambra on Friday night.

This was confirmed by the state Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).

Mr Adeoye Irelewuyi, Commander of the FRSC in Anambra, told newsmen on Saturday in Awka that the driver fled the scene after the incident.

Irelewuyi said that the likely cause of the accident was speeding. He reported that the crash involved an unidentified driver of a Toyota Hiace commercial bus with no registration number, en route to Upper Iweke, Onitsha.

“According to an eyewitness report, the driver of the vehicle, who was speeding, rammed into a female adult pedestrian and zoomed off.

“FRSC rescue team arrived at the scene and took the victim to Toronto Mortuary after the doctor confirmed her death,” he said.

He further cautioned motorists about speeding, especially during the rainy season.

Irelewuyi urged them to ensure they adhered to specified speed limits.
