TRAGEDY struck Sunday morning as six persons, including two serving youth corps members, lost their lives in a fatal auto crash along Warri – Sapele express road in Delta State.

The accident, as gathered, involved a Volkswagen Jetta car, occupied by the victims and a Toyota Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) and occurred around the Okwejeba axis of the Warri-Sapele Expressway.

The SUV driver was said to have been on top speed when he lost control and rammed into the Volkswagen Jetta car that was conveying the youth corps members.

All the six occupants, including the driver, the two corps members and three other passengers in the car died on the spot.
The identities of the youth corps members could not be ascertained as of press time.

A lucky female eyewitness, who would have boarded the ill-fated commercial vehicle, said the car had fully loaded before she got to the car park.
