The multiple accident which occured along Benin-Lagos road, by the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), Ugbowo, occured when Governor’s press crew bus allegedly had break failure and rammed into the other vehicles.
The Governor who visited the victims at the Hospital on Friday, offset the medical bills of persons who suffered various degrees of injuries in a road accident.
“We will also make sure we follow up with the full recovery of those who are still being treated for injuries from the accident.”
Consultant-General and Coordinator, Accident and Emergency Department, UBTH, Dr. Nnadi Nwashile, who conducted the Governor round, said, “The patients are in stable condition. Six persons in the bus were treated and discharged on the day of the accident.”
“The two patients in the hospital are Mrs. Mary Okoro and her son, Freeman Okoro, who are being treated. Mrs. Okoro sustained a fracture on her upper arm and is being attended to by an Orthopaedic doctor. The son will be discharged soon,” Nwashile said.
The accident, which occurred on Wednesday, involved a vehicle attached to the Governor’s Press Unit and two other vehicles. No life was lost.
