Cattle-laden truck crashes, kills 3, injures others in Jos


A trailer conveying people and cows in the early hours of Tuesday lost control at the Gada Biu/Kabong flyover bridge in the Jos North local government area of Plateau State, killing three of the passengers and about 10 of the cows.

Three other occupants of the vehicle who survived sustained different degrees of injury and are now receiving treatment in a hospital.

It was not confirmed where the vehicle was coming from or where it was headed before falling off the bridge but the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, community members, and other stakeholders helped in the evacuation at the accident scene.
