Tragic Auto Crash Claims Lives Of Couple And Their Four Children In Cross River
A devastating tragedy has struck the Ugep community in Cross River State, as a family of six lost their lives in a fatal auto crash along the Bekwara-Abochiche road last weekend. The victims of this heartbreaking accident were Mr. Edet Eteng, his wife, Ikow, and four of their children.
The four children were laid to rest on Tuesday, September 19, 2023, in Ugep, while the remains of Mr. Edet Eteng and his wife are now in a hospital mortuary in Ogoja LGA.
The Eteng family, originally residing in Abuja, had journeyed to their village in Ugep to celebrate the Leboku festival. Tragically, as they were returning to Abuja, their car collided with an oncoming vehicle, leading to the loss of their lives.
According to an eyewitness, the accident occurred when the Eteng family’s vehicle veered out of its lane and collided head-on with the oncoming vehicle, resulting in this devastating outcome.
The loss has left other family members in a state of shock, especially considering that Mr. Edet Eteng had recently mourned the passing of his elderly mother just a few days after celebrating her birthday.
The Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Cross River, SC Istifanus Ibrahim, confirmed the incident, indicating that it involved two vehicles and resulted in two other occupants sustaining injuries. The tragic event unfolded around the Otokpuru axis in Bekwarra Local Government Area, and the injured individuals were promptly taken to Abuochichie Cottage Hospital for medical attention.
“The information we gathered from security agents and a good Samaritan who were involved in the rescue operation because our post is a bit far from the scene of the accident, was that the probable cause of the fatal accident was over speeding,” he said.
“The accident claimed the lives of 6 persons, including one adult male (father) identified as Edet Eteng, one adult female (mother), and four children (three females and one male) all from one family,”
Road users, especially drivers, must as a matter of responsibility minimize speed during this rainy season because a lot can happen that may be beyond their control,” he added.
