The Federal Road Safety Corps, Bayelsa Command, said the accident was caused by speeding, which resulted in loss of control.

“The two cars were burnt and the victims in the Mazda were burnt beyond recognition, as the Camry was loaded with adulterated Premium Motor Spirit, which sparked the fire.

“The FRSC, with the assistant of other motorists, cleared the obstruction from the road for free flow of traffic,” the command added in a statement.

The spokesman for the state police command, Asinim Butswat, confirmed that a police constable was among the survivors.

He said, “There were three casualties and three others were hospitalised. They were badly burnt.”
