LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — An official says two road accidents that took place an hour apart have claimed 25 lives on a northern Nigerian road.
Zamfara state spokesman Nuhu Anka said Tuesday the first accident occurred Monday after a bus tire burst on Gusau-Sokoto road. The driver lost control of his vehicle, leading to death of six passengers who were headed to a wedding.
Anka said 19 people died in a second accident involving a bus and a car on the same road, and ten more were injured.
He said reckless driving caused the accidents.
He said the road, which is 130 miles (230 kilometers) long, was not damaged where the accidents occurred, although it has bad patches.
Traffic crashes remain common in Nigeria, a nation with potholed highways and many speeding drivers.
