The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Sector Commander in Bauchi State, Yusuf Abdullahi, disclosed this in a Road Traffic Crashes (RTC) report on Wednesday in Bauchi.

The five victims were burnt beyond recognition.

Mr Abdullahi said the accident which involved one Toyota Hiace bus and Peugeot J5 Boxer vehicle, happened around 6:25 a.m. at Panshanu village in Toro Local Government Area of the state.

He attributed the crash to a tyre burst of one of the vehicles which led to loss of control and collided with the other vehicle.

“All of them died as they were burnt beyond recognition,” he said.

The corpses and the vehicles were handed over to the police in Toro LGA, the Road Safety boss said.
