Tragic! Church Bus Crushes Artisan in Onitsha (Photos)

Tragedy struck on Monday, August 8, along Onitsha-Owerri express road, when a bus belonging to St. Mark’s Anglican Church, Omagba 1, crushed a young man selling watermelon displayed on a wheel barrow.

It was gathered that when the incident happened, the driver of the bus who looked visibly shocked, said the bus break suddenly stopped functioning as a result of which it hit the watermelon seller to death.

The driver who was dressed in a white robe like a priest, said he could not control the car when the break stopped working.

Investigations are still on to know what really happened as the windows of the bus were closed and the air conditioner still on when the incident happened, making some eyewitnesses suspect that the driver may have been asleep and could not explain what happened.
