  1. Thank God no loss of life…


  2. Wish them quick recovery


  3. If so glory be to God


    Reduce your speed now and always
    Familiarise yourself with the traffic code and abide by all the rules it contained
    When you get to a certain level of overspeeding,your tyres are almost not having enough gravitational force on the asphalt and the tyres will loose grip on the surface
    The steering control becomes less effective
    This can be compared to an air plane taxing at top speed,in readiness to lift off the ground
    In this state,the potentials to loose control is very high and a serious accident becomes a thing waiting to happen
    It’s like someone deliberately inviting a worst case scenario
    Life has no duplicate
    Always drive safely
    Safe journey to everyone


  5. Thank for that


  6. I just hope it reduce more than this


  7. @AdeLove, when there is no loss of life, then there is no casualty
    May GOD Almighty heal all those involved in the accident
