The New Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Delta said that four persons died during the Yuletide in an auto-crash.
The FRSC Sector Commander in the state, Mr Rindom Kunven, told NAN that a fatal crash claimed two males and two females while three others were seriously injured.
He said the incident occurred some two kilometres after Isele-Azagba and was caused by over-speeding.
Kunven added that the corpses of the victims have already been deposited at the Federal Medical Centre morgue.
He, however, said that the crashes recorded during the Yuletide had reduced greatly as a result of the strategies put in place by the FRSC.
Kunven said that measures were still in place to reduce the rate of crashes, adding that patrols would be intensified between Asaba and Agbor.
