Crutech students involved in ghastly accident

  No fewer than 11 Bachelor of Technology students of the department of Urban and Regional Planning, Cross River University of Technology, Calabar; escaped death recently while on a practical tour, Owojela's Blog learnt.

The vehicle conveying the students to Akpet Central during a practical tour was involved in a ghastly accident along Akamkpa axis of the Calabar-Ogoja road.

According to a source named CrutechPress, it was revealed that the accident occurred at 11 am along the Akamkpa axis of the road. However no life was lost in the incident.

Speaking to a source, one of the victims attributed the root cause to the bad state of the vehicle saying “The accident happened due to the unhealthy condition of the vehicle which led to the dropping of fuel on the exhaust”

Another student who preferred anonymity expressed dismay at the incidence saying “The vehicle stopped us and the driver complained that there is smoke coming out of the car. It was in the process of trying to check the cause that we noticed first coming out of the tire so everybody ran for their lives”.

The 2018/2019 First Semester Examination in CRUTECH had commenced on Monday the 27th of May, 2019 in all the campuses of the University, Owojela's Blog learnt.
