Two people were killed on Friday in an auto crash involving a car and a truck in Zangoro village, along Bauchi- Maiduguri road, according to Yusuf Abdullahi, the Sector Commander of FRSC in Bauchi.
Mr Abdullahi told with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that two others were also injured in the crash that occurred around 2 p.m.
He explained that a Peugeot 406 car with plate number, TRN36XL collided with an oncoming DAF truck with plate number, PKM77XA killing two of the victims instantly.
