According to reports, the collision involved a Toyota Bus and a stopped Ford Truck.
The truck loaded with drinks was set ablaze by enraged youths who surrounded the accident scene.
According to a witness, the bus driver was driving at top speed when he slammed into a stationary truck, killing two people on the spot.
According to him, the accident caused traffic congestion on the already congested highway for several hours, forcing motorists to seek alternate routes.
When contacted, Henry Benamaisia, Edo State Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, confirmed the accident and warned drivers against speeding, dangerous driving, indiscriminate parking, and other traffic violations.
He urged drivers in the state to practice safe driving habits and maintain discipline while on the road.
Benamaisia reassured motorists that the Corps is working hard to keep road accidents to a bare minimum.
He cautioned the public, however, against taking laws into their own hands.
